Jump Highers

We went to see Mr. Alan today to get our new orthotics.  They looked huge!  I guess that happens when you get them made once a year.

This first picture is of the top view.  You can't see the letters, but they say dafo.

This picture is of the bottom of the left foot.  You can see that the back 3/4 of the insert his molded in a hard plastic.  The white part is where Mr. Alan has customized it for Ayden Jane giving it extra support to keep her from pronating.

This last one is of the right foot.  You can see Mr. Alan had a lot of work to do on this one.

Mr. Alan also checked her knee and agrees there is a lot of laxity and poor tracking of her knee cap.  He measured Ayden Jane's knee for a knee brace.  AJ was so excited because she got to pick the color, purple of course.  I am excited to see the changes in her run over the course of the next month or so.  Even watching her on the swing tonight she was internally rotating that right leg something awful.

I am so thankful we have Mrs. Jen and Mr. Alan taking great care of her.  As new things pop up they handle them before they ever become big things.  AWESOME.
