Today Lydia had her casting session for her orthodic braces. The phyical therapist cast both of her feet up to the knee and will send the casts away so they can make braces. Lydia will wear the braces only at night and they’ll slowly stretch out her tendons so that eventually (we hope!) she’ll stop walking on her toes. Lydia did very well during the casting session, didn’t complain at all! As you can tell from the first picture she was being quite a ham. She looks a tad worried in the last photo – the PT was cutting the cast off and I think Lydia was a bit concerned at first!
***If you’ve landed on my blog from searching the ‘net for info on tip toe walking or serial casting or AFO braces, hello. This particular post here is one in a number I wrote about my daughter’s tip toe walking. I encourage you to start with this post instead. It encapsulates our journey more succinctly.***
