My DD was born with club feet 10 years ago now. I can try to answer some questions for you. The first year honestly went fast. There were so many appointments. We went with casting and surgery (there is also the Ponsetti method which is non surgery. At about 3 months they did a heal cord release. this took about 10 min. tops and the cast was put on right after. She had tylenol after and was fine. Her surgery was at 10months old. She came through it wonderfully. It was much harder on me. She had post op casts on (they were quite big to allow for swelling) we went back a few weeks after for a cast change. They have to put them under anesthesia so they don't move their feet and hurt the correction. They put on her reqular casts. I think that one was on for about 4 weeks. When those casts came off she had to wear afo's for. gosh I can't remember how long she had them for. I want to say 6 months but I really can't remember. We've did go back to her Ortho Dr this year with her complaining of foot pain. She has very flat feet and requires a simple insert in her shoes. They seem to be doing the trick though. Alexa use to do gymnastics from age 3 to 5 and for the last 3 summers has been playing soccer and loving it. Her and her brother have recently started Tae Kwon Do. So the club feet really has not slowed her down at all. you answered alot of my questions already. He suppose to be really good. He has traveled the world doing this. He also did his training with the guy who made the treatment for clubbed feet. He also invented the dobbs bar. Which is a brace that is used by most babies with clubbed feet. I no that when she is born they are putting cast on a few days after. Thats all I really no right now. How old was your daughter when she started walking. I love that you had your daughter in gumnastics when she was little. I was in gymnastics when I was younger and also wanted my daughter to be in it. I thought because she had this that she wouldnt be able to do stuff like that. So that just made my day! Was there anything over whelming for you as a mother to watch her go through. Ive heard that the cast arent that think and that you can put pants over them. Did you ever have a problem with buying clothes for her? Ive just had a long day with my sons so I really cant think of anything right now. Oh what is a heal cord release? Thanks you for your time. Its nice to know other moms that have went through this. I have to perfectly healthy little boys that have had no problems. So for my first and only daughter to have a birth defeact really upset me. Alexa started walking at 15 months BUT I didn't realise that she should have been wearing shoes with her afo's. We had rubber put on the bottoms so she wouldn't slip (not thinking of balance). As soon as we put shoes on she was able to balance her self and she was off. I did gymnastics too! annnd Yamaguchi had club feet. When Alexa was 3m we moved. That made our commute to Sick Kids in Toronto longer. I ended up driving to my mom's house the night before the appt and going to Toronto from there. It was more driving but it was MUCH easier. We did that weekly for a while so we were away from my DH a lot. Clothing was easy. She had fiberglass casts so they weren't as bulky. The post op casts she just wore dresses and then her last set were bigger too but leggings worked. They were purple so I bought her a Toronto Raptors cheer leader dress to wear with it. heal cord is the achilles tendon. They just make a little cut in her heal to lengthen it. She has a little scar on the back of each heal. It's genetically linked in my family, and dh's was a fluke. Treatment's come a long way since we all were babies, but my sister was young enough to get the casts when it was time to start her treatment. I had the bar, and dh had braces. None of us remembers any of this, but our moms love telling us all that the family went through with our little feet. Of the 3 of us, my dh and I are in our 30's and experience foot or hip pain pretty readily after a very long day at work. My sister never gets foot pain though. We've been told that we were all late walkers, but once we got moving, we were all on the go. My second son was born with one club foot. We used the Ponsetti method for him, which is different from the method Drea described. did not know about his foot until he was born because the ultrasound didn't get a good picture of his foot, and we declined a second ultrsound to get a look. we had first ortho visit at 1 month, at which point, they casted his leg. The first 24 hours of having a cast on was always the worst, but we him Tylenol and he was (I think we even gave him a dose before each cast, and then one later in the day, but ask your doctor about this.) He also did cry alot when they were putting each on, because they have to turn the leg outward at an exaggerated angle in order to correct the being turned inward. they do work REALLY fast when putting on a cast, so the discomfort is minimised. That first cast stayed on for a week, then they recasted for another week, and then recasted for a third week. Each time they turn the leg outward a little more. After 3 weeks, they did a tenodomy (think I'm spelling it right) which is where they cut the Achilles tendon at the back of the heel. (Drea mentioned this as the heel release). us, this was probably the worst part of it all, but it really was very longest part was waiting for the injection of anesthetic to kick in.) Then they casted for a fourth and final time, and that cast stayed on 3 weeks. for us, we had a total of 4 casts 6 weeks. But we were told our son's case was mild, so I a more severe case would require more casts over a longer period of time. I think Drea is right when she said the tenodomy or cutting of the Achilles tendon is necessary in all the casting, he had to wear shoes with a bar for 23 hours a day 3 months. far as things that were difficult, I remember that breastfeeding and cosleeping were a bit more difficult (eg moving him from one side to the other for feeding was a little harder with the cast on) but we certainly managed it. the shoes with the bar on 23 hours a day was hard too, because you have to do them up REALLY tight, and he didn't like that. Now he just has to wear them at night and he's pretty used to them. I mentioned before, the first day with each cast was the hardest, but the 3 were plaster casts so we had fun having them signed by family, friends, the doctors, nurses, and even our midwife. we go to the ortho clinic every 3 months for a check up, and at the last one, they said things looked great. We go again next week. am also happy to tell you that he took his first step the day after he turned 10 months old, and by 11 months he was running. He is now 14 months old and climbing on everything! If I didn't tell you he had a club foot, you would never guess by looking. So to update everything my daughter is now 7 weeks old started casting when she was 2 weeks old and is now on her 4th and last of these cast she is going for the surgery monday to get her tendon cut and her last and final cast all together. Her cast will be on for 3 weeks. Then shes done with them!!!! YAY!!! Im so excited to get to give her a real bath. SHe hasnt gotten one because her belly button didnt close up until she already had cast on. :( I havefound with the casting though that her legs grow so fast and they get so tight that it makes her really uncomforable. Her legs also stick horible throw her cast. I dont let anyone hold her because of the smell. I dont want them to think I dont bath her. I do! lol I have even tried putting lotion on the cast and the smell is still strong. I have even washed her legs off while im waiting on them to recast her. Nothing seems to help. Right now she has had this cast on for 2 weeks because doc. dobbs went on vaca. Her feet have grown so much that her toes are hanging out of the cast and her toes are over laping and a little purple. SO im calling her pedi today to see if we can just remove them seems how she gets a new one mon. She will be wearing afos the costume ones for 3 months for 23 hrs everyday then for just bed time until she is four. It is no where as bad as i thought it was going to be. that see her cast never really ask why she has them there always like oh she has clubed feet looks like there doing good. I guess it is more common then I thought. They day we got her first cast we went furniture shoping afterwards. I was so nervouse people were going to think we droped her and broke her legs or something. But two ladies walked up to me and told me how someone in there family had went through the same thing with the casting and you cant even tell they ever had it.

Women Nike Free Run 3 Hot Punch Neon Pink Volt Quilted,The nice weather is finally here, yet it seems like some of us still need that extra push to get moving. And bathing suit season is getting close, so let kick it up a notch with a challenge. The Run, Walk, Move challenge kicks off June 1 and runs until June 3o. That right folks it time to make another 30 day commitment. Run, Walk, Move is similar to the 30 for 30 challenge, which was 30 days of exercise for 30 days in a row, but with a bit of a twist. This time you going to commit to doing 900 minutes of exercise during the month. The reason is simple life gets in the way and it not always possible to commit to working out every single day. With the Run, Walk, Move challenge you keep track of how many minutes of exercise per day and write it on a calendar. At the end of the month your goal is to accumulate 900 minutes. Get out your calendar and take a good look at June. The best plan for the 900 minutes of exercise is to try to do a half hour every day, but if you miss a day you can go for an extra long walk, run or have a workout session the next time. For motivation, post the calendar on the refrigerator or bulletin board in the office so you remember to mark your time. Absolutely everything. As long as you are moving you are exercising. Walking the dog, doing yoga, lifting weights, TRX, Pilates, playing with the kids outside just about everything counts. Even housework can count as exercise, especially when you are lugging that heavy vacuum around the house. You don have to sweat buckets or fall down from exhaustion to reap the benefits of daily exercise. There is strong evidence that spending time during the day in physical activity is beneficial. Not only does it get your heart and blood pumping to improve your overall health, exercise is a good way to clear your head. No matter what your age, you should be exercising. But exercising doesn always meaning going to a gym and working out until you drop. It just means being physically active. Studies have shown it takes 21 to 30 days to break old habits and create new ones. This challenge should give you incentive to get some daily exercise into your life. For an added push, challenge co workers, fellow students and friends to participate. Some friendly competition to see who can hit 900 minutes at the end of the month is a great motivator. Figure out what time of the day works best for you and try to do it at the same time every day. Write your plan down on the calendar. For example: Monday, 30 minutes. Tuesday, kids soccer. Wednesday, a 60 minute walk. You get the picture. At the end of the week, tally up your minutes. Ideally, you should shoot for 210 minutes of exercise in a week to comfortably hit the 900 minute goal by the end of June. Make sure you have a good pair of shoes. You don have to spend a lot of money on them but make sure they are good quality. Your feet, knees and legs will thank you. Train with a partner or a group. If you are planning on walking every day on your lunch hour recruit your co workers. It makes it tougher to bail. And, of course, drop me an email or send me some pictures of your progress. Pictures of your group working out or walking are great, plus it shows you are committed to this challenge. And how cool would it be to be able to tell people you managed to squeeze 900 minutes of exercising into the month of June? It is an impressive goal. Come and join me in the Run, Walk or Move challenge! Let commit to 900 minutes of exercise in June.
The Lowest Price Welcome To Buy Women Nike Free Run 3 Hot Punch Neon Pink Volt Quilted,Men Nike Free Run 3.0 Total Orange Neon Reflective Silver Wolf Grey At the New England Aquarium in Boston there is an octopus named Truman. Truman's keepers liked to assert their superiority by forcing their ward to perform a series of pointless tricks before allowing him to eat his dinner. All of which is condoned in the name of the creature's "enrichment," which as far as we can see means "No food until you entertain me, bitch." This wouldn't be the first time that octopi have proven their intelligence to mankind. In March 2009, Truman's keepers decided the enrichment activity of choice was going to be lock picking, and Truman decided he'd had just about enough. A locked acrylic box containing live crabs was placed inside a larger box also locked and the whole device was lowered into the tank. Expecting the octopus to resist playing along until the aquarium was closed (we assume this was Truman's usual behavior in an attempt to maintain some dignity) the keepers went on their merry way doing whatever it is that octopus caregivers do (we assume something Hentai related). Acting out of character on this occasion, Truman paid immediate attention to the food puzzle he was faced with. He began to patrol the box to assess how exactly he could get his tentacles on the prize within. His reconnaissance was rewarded as the intrepid creature discovered a unexpected weakness that was ripe for exploitation. Three years earlier, the outer box had been used in a similar test on a different octopus. On that occasion, the box wound up getting broken, and a small hole was left near the lid. Truman, steadfastly refusing to work the latch that was his "puzzle" for the evening, commenced his own unique solution of pouring his body through the two inch hole in the outer box. Not pictured: crabs shitting themselves. He never got to the crabs remember they were inside the smaller interior box but we like to think he had a larger plan, which was to protest in the name of mistreated, puzzle solving octopi everywhere. "You like fucking with locks for fun? Well you better get to it if you want your PRIZED AQUARIUM OCTOPUS BACK, assholes!" 1. Kelly the Dolphin vs. Capitalism Meet Kelly, a dolphin who lived at the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies. Her trainers, perhaps out of laziness, decided to teach her how to pick up litter from her own tank. This was encouraged by presenting Kelly and her chums with a nice fishy meal whenever they retrieved trash from their pool and brought it to their trainer. Life was sweet for the keepers, the pool was kept clean with fuck all effort on their behalf and the dolphins were happy enough with their little game. But Kelly, like all great entrepreneurs, wondered whether there was a way of making a profit from it. And so one day, when someone dropped a piece of paper into the pool, rather than playing along with the game, Kelly picked up the litter and swam to the bottom of the pool, wedging it in place under a rock. The next time a trainer passed, she popped on down to the rock, tore off a tiny strip of paper and took it to the keeper. Bingo she got a fish. Holy shit! It worked! She had found a way to multiply her fishy return many times over. When the paper ran out, Kelly decided it was time to expand her business. In order to yield more impressive profits, she needed something more impressive than a piece of paper. Gulls are lots bigger than paper and they like to eat dolphin food, so they could be found hanging around the tank. Kelly tested her theory by catching an unsuspecting fish stealing gull and holding it in her mouth until a trainer arrived, her little fins twitching in anticipation. Bingo once again she hit the mark. She got a shit ton of fish in return. So now it was just a matter of attracting more gulls. The next time she was fed, Kelly stored a few fish under her rock hiding place. Once the keepers had left, she brought up a fish to use as bait. She caught another gull, waited for a trainer to come back, and proudly swam over to find herself once again rewarded with another shit ton of fish. She then taught her kids to do it, turning "gulls for fish" it into a family business. You have to impressed; not only was Kelly turning a profit here, she had done it by adapting her behavior to elicit the desired response from her keepers. She could get them to give her fish on demand. That's right; Kelly the dolphin trained her trainers. We've been warning you for years: The animals are rising against us.
