Waverly's Heel Cord

As I have said in previous posts, Waverly is having a more difficult time walking. It has really deteriorated over the past few months. Thankfully, she is still moving around and doesn't seem to be in any pain. In talking with our physical therapist and PMR doctor, we opted for some new orthotics. She will wear them at night while she sleeps. They will stretch her heel cord, which is incredibly tight. The hope is that the constant light stretching during the night, will keep her more mobile during the day. The longer we can keep her walking, the better her overall health will be.

We had the orthotics cast last week and we should have them in about a week. We picked purple and green polka dots for the straps and purple foam. I am hopeful that we will see some improvement with them.
