Miss Kassi's New Footwear!

You all know that we've been trying to find the best way to get Kassi's beautiful feet the care that they need so very badly, but have missed out on for 14 years.

I love those precious feet!
The current plan had been for some of us to travel to Missouri this summer, and see the #1 clubfoot specialist worldwide.  We were hoping and praying to find another option, though, if at all possible.

In the meantime, Mama had been looking to see if there was any other way that we could work things. And then.....

She came across Dr. Ferris, who does clubfoot casting every Wednesday in Pensacola - exactly halfway between New Orleans and Tallahassee! He also trained under Dr. Ponsetti, who created the type of casting that we are hoping will work for Kassi! So, we called the office hoping to get a consult appointment set up in the next few months. 

"Well, how about 11:00 this Wednesday?" asked the receptionist. 

As it happened, we were making a very short trip to Tally this week anyway, so it was perfect! 

That brings us to Wednesday. 

We met with Dr. Ferris, and discussed options. The bottom line was that casting couldn't hurt, and so we decided to try and get as much movement as we could as un-invasively as we could.

Mama asked if we should just schedule an appointment for the next casts....and Dr. Ferris suggested that we just go ahead and put them on that day!

So that's what we did!

We would so appreciate your prayers for her, friends - this is not easy, and it's not comfortable, but she wants to walk SO badly! If you would, please pray that the bones in her precious feet are still able to move enough to avoid invasive surgery.

Miss Kassi's "yellow legs" aren't her favorite thing (understandably so!), but, as she says, if she can walk at the end of all this it will be worth it!!!

We're so excited to see this unfold!
