I hate to give him something else you know? I really hate the idea of putting a DAFO on his leg that doesn't seem to be affected by his CP. But I know he won't change his way of walking without some sort of help. The other option was to get sturdy hiking boots but it is already so hard getting shoes that will fit both feet (the left over the DAFO and the right foot is so skinny even in smaller sizes shoes that are big enough for the left rarely stay on the right)
It was hard to see him walk in the right DAFO she had laying around. Minutes before he was running and showing off, but with it on he was unsure and unsteady, asking for help often...but on the other hand I have never seen him walk so normally, slow, unsteady but it looked RIGHT. I don't know how to explain it.
I feel like getting the right side would help him. But I guess it is just saddening. Does anyone have a suggestion? Anyone had something like this happen? Is there another option I am not seeing?
I hope all of that made sense. I have had a long day.
