They have so many things they share.
One of the biggest? They were all born with bilateral clubfoot.
So, on our way out to the door today, I made them all sit down to let me snap a picture of them together.
To remember these days.
The days when their twice-yearly visit to Boston Children’s rolls around – for a re-check of their now corrected clubfoot.
To see these three go, you’d never even suspect they were born with clubfoot.
Lightening, I tell ya. Even Vivienne can bust a move.
And now, based on their x-rays, our orthopedic doc says he can’t even tell the were born with clubfoot.
Thanks to Dr. Ponseti and the Ponseti method of serial castings.
Lots and lots of plaster.
And now just nightly bracing, praise the Lord.
In fact, not one of them remembers the way their feet used to look.
And when the subject comes up and they start to ask questions, I have to pull out their baby pictures as proof.
Sometimes I think they’re convinced I’m making it up.
But, we look at their pictures, and talk about it… I think it’s good for them to know.
How they started. And how far they’ve come.
How far they’ll go is completely up to them.
