I tucked my baby girl in tonight, strapped on her boots, snapped on her bar, and she looked up at me and said "mommy, I really hope my Dr say no more boots tomorrow. I am going to be very sad if he says I have to wear them a while longer." Bless her heart! She rarely kicks up a fuss about wearing her boots, though many nights she just can't seem to get comfortable anymore.
Tomorrow she has her annual follow up with her specialist. We are hoping that he will give us the ok to try Lilybear without her boots! She will be turning 4 in less than 2 weeks! Over the past nearly 4 years, Lily has had over 16 sets of casts applied, over 20 trips to The IWK, 2 trips to the OR, many many days of wearing a brace 23 hours a day, and many more wearing a brace for night and naps. She may be able to curl up, and sleep with comfort, and no brace or casts to get in the way of a good night sleep. This will not mean the end of her clubfoot journey, as she will need follow ups until she finishes growing. She will be at risk of relapse, and may still need a tendon relocation surgery on one or both feet. So please send some positive prayers and thoughts out way! Lily is really hoping she can finally wear some onesie Jammie's that have feet in them!!
