See these cute little Viet tootsies?
Unless you know right where to look and what to look for, you probably wouldn't notice it, but after sending videos and pictures to the most amazing supportive medical community I've ever come in contact with, they confirm what we feared. Jude's club feet are relapsing, and they have advised us to start treatment for him, sooner rather than later. Ever so slightly, Jude's feet are turning in, back to the way they were when he was born.
Back to clubbed feet.
This kinda hit us all of a sudden, so this past week has been a crazy (more than usual) scramble with doctors, nurses, the insurance company, his school and teacher, hotels, scheduling child care and flights... The doctors that he needs to treat him since he's quite a huge bit older than the typical club foot patient, well, they aren't anywhere close to us. So in less than 2 weeks, Jude and I are off to the Gateway to the West, St Louis, MO! (I've been told it's humid there. Say it ain't so! Being from AZ, I don't do humidity, and I've heard they have a wonderful zoo that's wheelchair friendly that we surely will visit!) We will be visiting St Louis 5-7 times between now and early December, just the 2 of us 'cause someone of course needs to stay here and hold down the crazy fort.
