We are praising God for our good report at Children's Hospital on wednesday. We were told Naomi has 4 bones in her foot , even though only 3 toes and that her foot is stable and a strong leg bone with no weak areas. The bowing of her tibia may straighten out as she grows we were also told and most of her leg legnth difference is because of the bowing. We were not able to see her ankle bones well and will go back in 3 months for extensive xrays for that and to see how she progresses. She will be fitted with an AFO that slips into a shoe that will be built up . We are very excited to see that she will be walking in a few months and that her bones are good and strong. The doctor also said there were no other abnormalities in the pelvic region or her knees and there is growth plates at the base of the knee of her short leg.

Last night I was thanking God for every good thing about her leg and foot. She wants to walk so bad and can cruise about the furniture. She does try to stand independently but cannot get her balance yet. But, with the AFO she will be on her way . Praise God. She is such a darling child and her need so incredibly manageable.

Cindi, what wonderful news about Naomi's foot! We were also at Children's on Friday. Henry saw his surgeon for one last post-op checkout. We don't have to go back for 6 months, and he probably won't have another surgery until he's about 5. Trish
