As you already know, Mr Boy was born with a club foot:
A few weeks after birth, his Orthopedic surgeon began casting his foot with a new cast every week for 6 weeks:
After the 6 weeks, the foot looked like this:
After the casting, he was supposed to wear this Ponseti Boots and Brace set for 3 months 24/7, to keep the foot in place.
But… Mr Boy had a separate surgery at the same time and since he looked so pitiful, we didn't make him wear the boots and brace for the full week of recovery.
Unfortunately, our decision to forgo the brace for one week, caused his foot to bend back enough to make the Doctor re-cast his foot again. :(

Mr Boy loved it!! With all his sensory issues and fears, this was such an accomplishment! A few months ago this would not have been possible.

And finally today arrived:
Mr Boy was sooooo calm and excited for his cast becasue he picked out "bright green."
