Avery's Feet....

Avery had been having lots of leg, knee, and foot pain for the past 6 months or so.

We were never sure what exactly it was, but was concerned it had to do with her spinal issues from birth.

After visiting some friends, they watched her run/walk, and said , "Well, look....she has flat feet!". I felt so dumb! I had never thought of that before. When she runs, it looks so painful for her, and we decided to see if there was anything we could do for her.

So, called our pediatrician, and she referred a doctor for us to see in Big Town. We took the trip down there are May 30th. The Dr. saw us for all of 5 minutes, and it was a total disappointment. He watched her walk, and solved her "problem" immediately. Didn't even look at all of the medical records we had sent over. Here, I had been worried for days, weeks that the problem stemmed from her spine, and she would have numerous tests done.

Anyhow, he then sent us over to an orthodics place for her to meet with someone there.

The man we saw there was great, spent time with us, explained her feet to us, and then took some fun molds of her feet!

We just were able to stop through Big Town again and pick up her new pair of orthodics! She has been wearing them ever since! $250 later, and we're good to go :)
