Small delays...

Well, due to various circumstances, there is not much new to report. Jenelle was scheduled to see Dr. Shields at UCLA this coming Monday, but his office had to reschedule due to a family emergency. We're keeping him in our good thoughts that all is well for his family. In the 4 years we've been seeing him, this is the first time he has ever re-scheduled an appointment. We are now scheduled to se him September 10.

Last Monday, I took Jenelle to her appointment to pick up her new AFOs (with the new hinge) that she was casted for on June 29. Unfortunately, it appears our girl has had another growth spurt and she has already outgrown the new AFOs! At the top by 2 inches! We didn't get to take them home, and we're going to have to wait a week or so for new AFOs to be built. It’s a shame as the new ones were purple this time to match her new wheelchair. Jenelle seemed very excited about them.

Hopefully in a couple of weeks, I'll have new AFO photos to share! Thanks for the continued prayers and positive thoughts!

That is some fast growth! AFOs seem to fit for such a short time, even on my son who grows very slowly, the shape of his feet is still constantly changing (which is kinda why he needs the AFOs in the first place--what a catch-22!).

My boy's having surgery on his feet next week, and yes, that means ANOTHER set of AFOs after the casts come off... *sigh*

Ben was recently fitted for his new AFOs as well! And I too am amazed at how quickly our children grow. Maybe it's the lack of mobility? I do know that every now and then we pick up Ben and it's like he gained 10 pounds overnight.

We'll miss seeing you at UCLA by two days--we too were rescheduled, but because of a conference. I'm sure we'll meet up there one of these days! :-)
