Guest Post: End of an Era

Well my friends, it may be too good to be true, but we have the go-ahead to get rid of the Dobbs brace for the next month!  We have an appointment in four weeks to see how Jamie's feet are doing, and if all is well we could potentially be finished with the bracing process at 26 months!  I can't even tell you how exciting this is, or how strange it is that the brace has become such a "normal" part of life.  It has been right in the middle of his bedtime routine for almost two years, in between drinking his milk and brushing his teeth.  And now we could actually stand up on the step stool at the sink to brush our teeth, and he could sleep in the cute little footed pajamas we have never been able to use!  As joyful as this occasion is, it's also a little sobering to recognize that things are changing, and are just going to keep changing as he grows up.  I just pray we will continue to be as blessed as we have been.  And that we will be able to roll with the punches if he has a recurrence of club foot later, which could very well happen.  But for now, his parents will enjoy every second of a much quieter sleep experience even though Jamie doesn't seem to sleep as well without his "hardware."  :)
