We went to pick up Blaze's new leg brace this morning and then had to buy new shoes that the brace would fit into. It's not the style of brace that we thought Blaze was getting, but he's pretty excited, so far, because it's more sleek and high tech looking than the clear plastic brace, covered in skateboard prints that we thought he was getting. Right now, he thinks this looks like a fancy mechanical leg. I just hope his imagination holds up to any comments he gets from the neighbor children. He has headed outside to take his first walk in the brace.
He only has to wear it for two hours today, but the time is supposed to lengthen as he gets used to it.
