Picture Timeline

Knox is now 9 mos old!  He has made wonderful progress and is crawling and cruising everywhere.  Here is a picture timeline of our clubfoot progress from birth to now.


1st Set of Casts

After 1st set of casts

After 4th set of casts--ready for tenotomy

After 4th set of casts--ready for tenotomy (feet were not fully corrected but dr. insisted on doing tenotomy)

Tenotomy Casts (surgery completed too early and did not acheive the maximum results)

Rocker foot caused from incorrect castings--I demanded no more casts from Dr. Kean at Nationwide Children's Hospital (Columbus, OH).  We made an appt to head to Iowa 4 days later.

1st trip to Iowa

1st meeting with Dr. Morcuende.  Dr. M confirmed that we were casted incorrectly in Columbus and that he caused Knox to become a "Complex" clubfoot case along with a rocker foot.

We have a crawler!

Knox has officially started crawling...........YAY!!! He just turned 8 mos old and is always on the go.  It's amazing to watch nothing get in his way..............even his heavy shoes. He will also pull himself to a standing position.  He's pretty clumsy so we have to watch what is around him so that he doesn't end up with a ton of bruises.  He fell and bonked his head on the coffee table a few weeks ago and still has a bruise on his forehead :(  He's also been loving the pool lately..............probably more than Lily has.
