Witt has been growing and getting lots of physical and occupational therapy.
Now he has braces to help him learn to stand!The process
started with casts being made of both feet up to the knees. Since it was a
very bright day out when we went to the appointment Witt wore his baseball cap!
Here is the final product and actually it was a pretty easy process!
The woman who did the casting was wonderful. She has been doing this for quite a few years.
One trick of the trade is to make a cast with a rubber tube inside to protect the
legs. She slits the casts to remove them where the rubber tubing is.
A couple of weeks later and his braces were ready!
With help from the therapist Witt was standing!! The doctor has also ordered a "stander"
which along with the braces will help Witt to put more weight on his legs.
When Melanie texted "Witt's standing!!!!!" I just jumped to my feet and said Hallelujah!!
The song "Shout To The Lord" immediately came to my mind!
