Free at Last, Free at Last!

I'm a little late with the update, but here's the good news: Austin's brace time is now reduced to just nap time and bed time! WOO!

We had a great (albeit short) appointment with Dr. Dietz in Iowa City. Austin's feet are doing so well and Dr. Dietz commended us for being so consistent with the brace, and of course, reiterated the importance of it. He didn't have to tell me twice :) I've seen such amazing improvement in Austin's feet since we started this process. It's absolutely incredible.

So now instead of being in his brace 23 hours a day, with just a 1 hour break, he will only be in the brace if he's taking a nap and when he's sleeping overnight. It's so great to finally be at this point! I know at the beginning of the 3 months for being in the brace 23/7 we weren't sure how we were going to make it through. The time just seemed to be going so slowly and we felt so bad for Austin. But he's been such a trooper and is such an easy-going baby that it really helped this whole process. God is so good and got us through the 3 months without a hitch and now Austin gets the reward of feet that are even more improved. We're feeling VERY blessed, and very thankful.

We're so grateful God led us to the doctors in Iowa City and has carried us through the process thus far. We know He'll get us all to the end and that Austin will have beautiful, perfect feet!

Thank you all so much for your prayers!
