Guess what we have??????????
Ok, so it is probably a pretty easy guess at this point. Today we got to pick up Madi's first pair of HKFOs! They are adorable and we love them! There is definitely going to be a learning curve, as Madi is used to her stander which stabilizes her. She also "walks" differently in her stander than she will in her HKFOs. She is excited about them, though, and has already been in them a bit today. She has physical therapy on Tuesday and I am excited to have Tami show me how to best help her learn to use them. Ron did a wonderful job (I knew he would!) and really thought of everything. There are locking joints at her knee and hip. There are also elastic straps in the back to help keep her from slouching over and to give her a little bounce in her step. I took a few different pictures so you could see exactly what they look like. I know it will take her a bit to figure out how to use the HKFOs, but I really think she is going to love these once she gets the hang of them. I've said it before and I'll say it again.... Watch out world, here comes Madi!!
