Red boot

Serial casting round one! His physiatrist only ended up casting his right leg as his left ankle has good range of motion. So far he doesn't seem to mind it at all. He is very proud of his new red boot!

Walking videos (featuring the SWASH)

I have been wanting to share Drake's gait/walking improvement with his new hip orthotic (SWASH). Here is a video of him walking without the SWASH. Here is a video of him walking with the SWASH.

I know I am holding his hards too high when we walk. :) But, it's amazing how well the SWASH corrects the scissor gait. He is now walking much more as he wears it several hours a day. He can also crawl and sit in it.
