Orthopaedic Braces

Today, Bertrand's physical therapist at Shriners, Cindy, suggested that we get Bertrand some leg braces. It is Cindy's hope that the braces will be able to restrict/calm the movement in Bertrand's feet thereby freeing up his concentration so he can focus on walking--rather than keeping his feet steady. (More than for physical benefit, I see this as Bertrand's attempt to stay abreast of his fashion maven friend, little Miss Hannah!)

In other news, we were late to Shriners for the first time today. The staff was shocked, but still in their staff meeting. (Basically we just didn't have to wait as long as we usually do.) Why were we late, you ask? As you can see from the picture below, we have our first real snow! The picture was taken this morning and it is coming down even harder now. It looks more like Christmas than Halloween! It is definitely time to look for a 4-wheel drive car.
