Today marks the beginning of Jude’s treatment to correct his relapsing clubfoot.
He’ll get his first of two casts to prepare his foot for surgery.
But I am here. At home. Holding down the fort with the other kiddos.
Wishing I could be there with him.
Chris, Jude, Sophie, Dalton and Shepherd headed out on Saturday for the long drive to Iowa. They’ll be staying for a week to complete the first and second casts. Then they’ll come home for about a week.
On the 24th, I’ll head back up to Iowa with Jude for his surgery on the 26th.
And then he’ll start what I imagine will be the longest six weeks of his life : six weeks in a non-weight bearing cast as he recovers from surgery.
