Stinky and Her AFO's!

AFO=Ankle-Foot Orthotic. Stinky's new leg braces! We just got them in today. These braces will help restrict ankle movement when Annabel is in her stander. They will also provide support during her physical therapy with general weight bearing and sitting up, etc. We will slowly begin wearing the braces for a little bit each day until Stinky gets used to them. Then we need to find some new shoes that will fit over the new braces..that makes Mom excited, because buying new shoes is always a good thing! Once we have the shoes, we are set for April 9th. That's the day we are meeting with our physical therapist and our rehabilitation specialist to begin working in the stander! We can't wait!

Below: Stinky is modeling the brace in the first photo, super cute! The second photo is just a close up so everyone can see the cute pattern that we chose for the braces. The last two photos show Mom's hands holding the braces: truly some of the smallest AFO's ever made!

    Love,Meemaw and Pawpaw
