Welcome to our little space on the net! This blog is just about our family life, and began as a way to keep family and friends updated on what was going on with my pregnancy with our first son, Gage. We've since added Evie to our family, and I continue to blog about family life, car seats, spina bifida, and anything else that catches my attention.

The Chair

Just a quick update and an introduction of the chair.  We've had it for a few weeks now, and he loves it.  He's gotten really good at driving it.  He hates "tipments" or anywhere that I have to tip the chair to get him safely up or down, like a curb.  He gets scolded for doing donuts in stores and nearly taking out the people in the aisles. 

The foot is almost completely healed.  There's a tiny little opening still, but there's no depth to it and it's not really an issue anymore.

Now, we are dealing with probable surgery to correct the bad positioning that caused this whole ordeal to begin with.  We went to see Dr. H, the rehab doc this Thursday (LOVE her!).  She agreed that we were just going to risk this kind of injury again if things stayed as-is, and no amount of bracing is going to help.  She wants him to stay off of it for the most part, and she is going to get in touch with the orthopedist and recommend Gage be seen ASAP, which, for this specialty, might still be a while.  We do have our trip to Universal coming up, but had planned for Gage to use his chair while in the park anyway.
