Today’s appointment turned out to be less traumatic than I had anticipated. After examining her today, he thinks she’s doing really well - was impressed with her walking & moving around. He’s happy with the positions of her feet & let me know these tendons take 6 weeks to heal. Therefore, he will not be removing her casts until April 8th. (We misinformed by a nurse that thought it had already been 6 weeks since her surgery.) He did let me know, after doing her surgery, that her feet are oddly tight. 20% of clubfoot cases are associated with other genetic disorders or syndromes. Basically, it is odd for her feet to be this tight & her not have any genetic disorder or syndrome.
He also let me know that this surgery is not a fix all (like we believed last January) but an improvement. Her feet are going to be a work in progress for awhile. Which honestly, sucks to think about... but oddly, all I can think is how thankful I am that she was designed just as God intended. Even if the journey is different, harder, & longer than we anticipated, it could be so much worse. (These feelings are 100% proof that God answers prayer.)
There is no light at the end of this tunnel YET, but healing in the name of Jesus. His timetable just isn’t mine.
