Check Out The New and Improved Foot!

This is the foot with all of the gross badages off. She will have several scars, but if you saw her foot before this after shot looks great. Her foot is flat on the bottom and at a great angle. Caroline walked on her tiptoes. So now she will be able to walk flat footed. We are so happy with they way it looked on Monday. She still has to wear a cast for three more weeks. After the cast comes of she will have a special brace to wear in her shoe for quite a while. Her goal right now is the be walking barefooted at grandma and papa's pool by the summer! What a brave girl. We are proud of you Caroline!
This is what Caroline's foot looked like on Monday when the nurse removed her cast from surgery. The gauze badages had been on there the whole time since surgery.
