This week we got to pick up Joe's orthotics. The first day he only wore them for a couple of hours. Then every day we increase the ammount of time that he wears them until he ends up wearing them every waking hour. Thank goodness he is so good natured, he doesn't seem to mind being strapped into them. I think I'd be irritated like crazy to have to wear those things all the time. I imagine it feels kind of like wearing ski boots - I hated ski boots. So far they are bulky and cumbersome and I'm trying to remind myself that they will help him and it'll be worth all the hassle in the long run. Right?
