P.T. came to visit

Benji had a physical therapist come and evaluate him today. It was Susan, she came out with Deanna to assess his feet/legs. Last time she came it was more for eating than for his walking because he wasn't walking yet. Which his eating is doing great.

After playing with Benji and getting him to do specific things, she has decided that he might benefit from orthodotics (sp?). It will not be a guaranteed fix, but it is worth a try to see if the pronation will correct. He will still be flat footed.

The orthodotic will be the DAFO 5.

She left it up to me as to whether or not to try the shoe insert. I said yes, because if there is a chance to fix the problem now I would instead of facing foot surgery later on in life.
