Done All I can Do. . .

So after 2 months of castings, making one or more trips to the hospital orthopedic clinics every week. . . Our Orthopedic Surgeon final advised that he had done all he could do, and we were referred to the IWK Children's Hospital in Halifax, NS. for surgery. Our "dr" and I use the term loosely, advised us of this after removing the 7th set of Lilybears casts that had been on for 2 weeks this time. . . This is what we found under those casts:




Bruises, broken blood vessels, and feet that were not corrected. . . I cried that day too. Our "dr" advised us that we would just leave the casts off for the week till our appointment at the IWK, and to "stretch" her feet. He very briefly showed us how to stretch them, told us to do it every diaper change, and then promptly left the room very rudely like we had been wasting his time.

RED FLAG FOR PARENTS: IF YOUR DR TRIED TO TELL YOU TO LEAVE THE CASTS OFF FOR ANY PERIOD OF TIME AND "STRETCH" THE FEET, SEEK NEW MEDICAL STAFF! See next posting for more info!
