Toe Walking Update!

We found a company that makes braces for toe walking pretty cheap. I decided we’re going to try them out and add in more physical therapy exercises for Sierra before taking her into the doctor for AFO (expensive, customized) braces in three months. If we see a lot of progress from the braces we bought (from the very town in Washington we considered moving to, ironically) then we won’t go through with the doctor’s plan after all and will stick with the cheap, easy ones.

So we measured her feet the other day so we could order them.

And I took a video of her walking and jumping and turning and trying to touch her toes so that in a few months we can hopefully see a big difference in comparison. That video is boring but I did snap two pictures then as well.

Here’s to 2012 being the year Sierra walked normally and stopped the pressure on her toes and deforming her feet!!
