There was a discussion on one of the Facebook groups I belong to on how and when to educate one’s child on surgery. I responded there with a simplified version of what follows, but I have more to say (as I usually do).
Namine got new shoes, and they’re nothing like anything she’s ever worn before.
We’re rethinking a decision made by Namine’s foot doctor.
Namine and I had a blast at our dance dress rehearsal!
Five years ago, Namine had her second club foot repair surgery.
Every year since Namine was four, we get these memories that show up in our “On This Day” Facebook feed. The memory in question is about us pulling here out of school.
We met with Namine’s orthopedic surgeon to discuss possible surgery.
I love to write about Namine’s progress in her walker. I haven’t written as much about her braces, though.
When we told Namine she had an appointment with Dr. Black, we were met with a look of confusion.
With as much work as Namine has been doing in physical therapy lately, it got me thinking. It’s been over two years since her second foot surgery, and she’s come leaps and bounds (sometimes literally) since then. It simply amazes me, how strong and resilient my daughter is.
