|Proof that we were in Dallas. See the "Reunion tower" (The big ball in the background)?|
After filling out some paperwork we waited for them to call us back.
|Some of the sweet decor. This thing was spinning, jingling and clicking..etc. It definitely entertained Siena.|
The actual update: He kept saying that since he hadn't seen her foot before, he couldn't really say what kind of change it had made, but he said that her foot was looking really really good. He said that by looking at her x-rays that he thinks she will have Fibular Hemimelia. If you look that up online, it's a pretty scary sounding thing, but don't worry. Because she is able to stand and walk, I'm pretty positive that they won't have to amputate her leg. When you look at all the cases in which they amputated, they did it when they were really young and the child's foot didn't have all the shape that Siena's has. The Dr told us to come back in whenever she grows out of her next pair of shoes which means 6 mo-1 year from now.
Side note: apparently our old Dr 's office was state of the art because this new dr doesn't use the shoes that she has. They only have the old school ones that are stationary and don't rotate like the ones Siena has. We are counting ourselves lucky for having had the Dr that we had. Boy are we missing Dr Klatt and Primary Children's, but I'm sure we'll have a good experience with this new Dr.
Here are our fun finds from this last weekend's Garage sales:
- 1 book $0.25
- 6 different types of vintage fabric for $3.00 total! (Each had about 2-3 yards worth!)
- The fabrics were either old ones that this lady had purchased, or some were her mother's that had been handed down to her! Pretty sweet!
- and Veggie Tale's Jonah and the Whale DVD for $1.
Here's the tag from one of the fabrics:
I didn't even know that JCPenny even sold fabric once upon a time.. Anyone know when the last time was they sold fabric? Kinda fun!
