|Hugo wearing his Markel boots just arrived at Hospital|
|Emilyn in the children's ward waiting room|
As Hugo has been suffering with recurring blisters they said straight away to try the new boots, They always try the Mitchel boots first as NHS are paying & they are half the price. i completely understand this but Hugo didn't get along with them.
They checked his feet & could see his foot wasn't quite fitting the boot properly his heel didn't match up with the heel in the boot. Then examined his foot & said his foot was quite bendy, Mentioning Hyper mobility here & there.
After examining his foot more they seemed slightly concerned, said they will know more once he is walking but may need the Tendon operation...
the whole appointment was a bit of a blur, Hugo wouldn't keep still we tried to amuse him with a toy car. that worked for a few minutes...
We finally got his new boots on & they gave us a little bar bumper & a gorgeous cover that a mum donates to the ward.
|Leaving the hospital|
Hugo stayed in his BnB & we had no rude comments or any horrible stares... Brilliant!
|Emilyn in BabyGap|
I found it quite difficult to read a few of the comments as i know deep down the ladies are trying to help but the way my Physio's put his boots on is the way i think they should go on, i trust my physio 100% i then got lots of negative comments about the boots being on wrong & this is what "DR Ponseti" wants ... i took it all very personally as I know feel torn. i just want the best for my son & i got made to feel so small & not knowing whats what... which with these new boots i don't! i don't have a clue...
it was meant to be a happy day & this made it all quite negative for me... i worry enough about his feet & certainly don't want to be doing anything to harm him.
|Hugo having his night time bottle - throwing his new boots in the air they are so light compared to the other ones.|
