Two BIG things

Two big things have happened this week.

1. Miss Isla has graduated Kindy (!!). Oh so cute!
2. The best news of all, physio has told us NOT to wear her AFO's (until February at least!!!!!!!) and Isla does NOT have to go into plaster following last months Botox!!!!!!

How awesome!

Isla's calves aren't doing too bad, they're now more concerned about her hamstrings, so it means no AFO's during the day - just normal shoes!! - and right AFO and night splints of a night time!

I can't explain just how much of a big deal this is.

The AFO's that Isla is currently wearing are new to us. We've always had them made by Rob, the Orthotist, but last time we didn't. Never again! Even though these one's we didn't have to pay for, they've caused Isla nothing but trouble since we've had them (6ish months) so we'll pay the $1500 for new "Rob" ones from now on!

So, now I get to go and buy my little girl shoes, shoes that will fit her feet, not her orthotics! I can't remember the last time I did that! Probably before she was diagnosed with CP I suspect.

Just think of all the pretty shoes we can buy!

Oh Happy Day!
