the ongoing saga of Ethan's feet [Sep. 2nd, 2004|10:25 am]
Clubfoot Discussion Community


we were wondering if he DID get polio. He WAS sick
between trips. completely isolated. and we watched the
video we got of him at 18 months old and his feet were
straight. (he is 27 months now)club foot doesnt just
come on one day does it? Either your feet are straight
or they arent! he was running all over in the video
and was walking/running in a perfectly normal gait.he
was in stocking feet so we could see the shape of his
foot. so now I just dont know WHAT to think. all I
know is someone better figure this out and fix it so
this kid can lead a normal active litle boy life! it
doesnt slow him down too much but as he gets older it
will be more of a hindrance and kids tease. the
muscles in the leg are all atrophied typical of polio
but also isnt that typical of club foot? man that
appointment cant get here fast enough! I wanna know
what we need to do. and if what we need to do IS
casting I dont wanna have to drive to Iowa city every
week in the winter.
