AFO results...

Izzy with Gram & Emelia

I have been recording the angles of izzy's ankles each week since we got her new AFOs.  
When we started the left foot was 45 degrees and the right was 25 degrees
After the first two weeks it was 40  and 20. (measured by orthotist)
November 24 it was 32 & 18.
Today it is 28 and 12!!!  When we get within 10 degrees of our goal (90 degrees or normal flat foot) we will order the standing AFOs and shoes!
Our goal (set by orthotist) was to get 2-3 degrees per week!  She has exceeded those goals.  
We should be getting the KIDWALK any day now.  I pray that she is inspired to move when she gets in it and that her feet are stretched enough to stand comfortably.  Well, I really pray that she'll take off walking (Mark 11:24 ... 2 Corinthians 5:7).
