six percent :: an update

I shared about Jude’s clubfoot relapse. And going for an MRI a few weeks ago.

And y’all were so awesome to say some prayers for our little man.

So I wanted to give an update. Short and sweet.

We got the results late this week. And it was very, very good news.

Jude’s MRI was completely normal.

So now we know his condition is straightforward clubfoot. All he needs from here is two casts, followed by a surgery. And then a bunch of rehab, but I don’t want to think about that right now.

We’ll get started with his casts in early and mid July, and his surgery is set for July 26th. So grateful for the team at University of Iowa – it may be a 17 hour drive, but I’d drive anywhere to know that our little guy is in the safest of hands.

Will continue to keep y’all posted on Jude. And his had-to-be-in-the-6%-couldn’t-be-in-the-other-94% foot.



  1. HOORAH – God is always good – but He did a particularly good job on this one!! 😉

    So glad the path ahead is straightforward!! Sorry the little guy will spend his summer in casts and such, but I’ll bet he will get lots of swimming and running around in during June!!!

    God bless Jude!! You will ROCK the cast look!! Every one will want one!!! 😉

    prayers for you always!!

  3. That smile is priceless. Praying that all the casts and surgery ahead doesn’t take it away this summer 😉

  4. That is excellent news! Congrats!

    Great news! (I think) Guess this news is the better of two possibilities. It won’t be a fun summer for Jude but the end result will be WELL worth it.

    We’ll keep the prayers going.

  7. God bless.

  8. Hooray Jude!!! So glad the MRI was ok. Will keep you guys lifted up in prayer!

  9. Stefanie-
    My Jude just stopped wearing his braces. I’m so scared he’ll revert. There’s nothing I can do though.
    Thx for sharing that even if it happens, it’s all ok. Even the 6% is still treatable.

  10. So happy for the good news! Continued thoughts and prayers of course for everything yet to come! Thanks for the update!

  11. So glad to hear this!!! I know it’s a lot, but it so helps to have a plan and few unknowns.

  12. What wonderful news for you and your sweet Jude!
