Gavin was evaluated this afternoon for PT. Gavin’s feet are pretty bad but over all it could be alot worse.
He still can’t cross his midline and that’s a problem. However, the most concern revolves around his feet and ankles. His ankle is very loose and his arches are collapsing. He actually walks on the the inside of his arch, if you can picture that.
The bumps that I brought up last week are most likely bones shifting due to the way he walks and his collapsing arches. The one thing that really got me was when she was showing me how loose Gavin’s ankles are. There is so much flexibility that when she pulled his foot you could actually see the skin stretching.
It was kinda creepy because it just looks awful to see that. Gavin needs support in his shoes and possibly ankle braces.
Like I said, overall it could have been much worse. Gavin did really well and I’m quite proud that he never gave up. PT will begin as soon as the doctor’s clear everything.
Great job Gavin.
