In the Home Stretch

Zachary's appointment went very well yesterday.  Dr. Miller said that his feet looked very good and the overall results were better than expected, especially with his left foot, which had been lagging a bit behind.  We were able to give Zach a real bath once his old casts were taken off, and after Dr. Miller evaluated and reset his feet, it was time for his new (and final) set of casts.  He will have this last set on for two weeks before he makes his final move to a shiny new set of white leather shoes!  For eleven weeks Zachary has been in casts and working on straightening his feet, all the while being the ideal patient and never really fussing or crying during all of his appointments.  Yesterday was a bit of a different story.  We're not sure if it was the fact that Zachary had not gotten his morning nap, or if he was reacting to the 2 year old girl who had a nuclear meltdown and was running the halls screaming, but he was not real happy to be at Children's for the first hour.  By the time they put on his new casts he was pretty well exhausted and slept through the whole process.  
We are all excited that Zach has entered this last step (no pun intended) of his journey to healthy feet.  We continue our prayers for Zachary's success, and are extremely thankful that the Lord has blessed us and answered so many of our prayers to this point.  Enjoy the pictures, and the Easter Bunny!   Love to You All - Brian + Kimmie 


  1. This is such great news. I am so happy for all. It is time for him to enjoy a bath, have is toes done with "this little piggy" and feel free to kick those legs. Hugs and Kisses to all. Love Mimi and Papa

  2. Super news for the 3Z's... YEAH! I'm looking forward to seeing him in some slick white shoes... Maybe a nice white buck like Pat Boone!!

    Hope to see you all soon!

  3. One step at a time makes for the greatest of adventures! Whatever is in Zach's future, he will certainly stand tall (in every sense of the word and abstract meaning)! We love you. Dave and Denise
