Today I took Jonah back to Iowa City to get his casts off. He has been a very good boy the last few weeks... I'm not sure who was more excited to get them off! When we got there he soaked in the sink to help soften the plaster for about 20 minutes. Then our nurse, Maria, cut them off and he just laid there, completely relaxed. As you can see- he was a pretty happy boy!
Dr. Ponsetti happened to come into work today, so we were lucky enough to get to meet him too! (People bring their children to him from all over the world to be treated- normally for clubfoot) He looked at Jonah's feet and said he thinks he shouldn't need any more casts, but we will go back in a month to follow up. I made sure to get a picture of the two of them- he is such a kind & gentle doctor! 94 years and still working- pretty amazing!
