Even a relatively difficult day like today has a silver lining sometimes. Rachael and I went into the night shift feeling a little gloom and put out. Maybe the one month "birthday" is a tough milestone to swallow. And to think that tomorrow is their due date. That is going to be another bummer. Anyhow, back to the title of the moment, Jack was supposed to get his cast changed today for his "club foot." Well, it turns out that the doc was so surprised and pleased with Jack's progress that he decided not to even re-cast him. Apparently he may not have a club foot after all. Turns out it could have been just like his fingers but in a different form. The doctor couldn't believe how loose jack's foot/ankle was and thinks it will correct itself now. Of course this, like anything, is subject to change, but Jack may go without 4 plus years of bracing for his foot. Good job Jack. Now if you could only fix the minor things in life like breathing and swallowing we would be kicking ass.
