foot day

We headed off to hospital this morning having enjoyed our week off last week. The physio is really pleased with how nick is doing. He is tolerating the boots brilliantly. He even managed to roll over this week! It was Wednesday 10th September so just the day after he turned 16 wks and we were at my inlaws and flip, over he went just like that! I was so pleased that the bar and his surgery hasn’t held him back. I think daddy was disappointed to have missed it but it certainly made nanny’s day.
Unfortunately the physio has said nick will almost definately need another tenotomy. His heel is just far too high. She said that it will be when he is 6 months old and will be under a general anesthetic. That’s quite daunting for us but I believe there is no need for me to dwell on it. If I think about it too much I go into a panic at the idea of him back in casts for another 3 weeks, I just need to accept that this is how it needs to be and that we will get through it. I just don’t want him to be in cast for his first Xmas!
Other than that though all is good. We don’t have to go back for 4 weeks now and we are allowed to get his feet out for 2 hours a day which will be wonderful!
