Mom gets plastered



We're setting up Mom for an ankle brace to slip inside her shoe. It will help her walk better as she propels herself around the house and soon, we are sure, down the sidewalk in front of Kell. Today a plaster cast was constructed on the spot by Dennis the Orthotist, so that he can quickly make a proper insert for her.
Dennis showed up with a full kit today and went right to work. Before you knew it, he was cutting the hardened mold off her foot, a perfect replica of her right ankle. It was all very exciting. . . and educational too, as we learned a lot about the joints that make mobility possible.
