Here's some picks of our afternoon at the Cleveland Clinic having Bee's brace made.
In the waiting room waiting patiently!!
Putting on the "stocking" dress to prepare for the nasty wet plaster.

The water bucket and plaster wraps getting ready.
Not sure what exactly she's doing here, but it's funny whatever it is!!
Prophet and D.K. watching the action (the part that I videoed)
Trying to decide what designs to put on her brace. This was an incredibly tough decision. She looked and looked, changed her mind a few times, and finally chose something.... that the orthotics dude forgot to point out was the only thing on the page not available for her type of brace! Man!
In the end, she decided that her brace will look like these little leg braces for a little girl who was picking them up the next day. He thought maybe if she could see something in real life, it would be easier. She had thought about haveing the swirly,colored stuff on it, but hadn't considered the horses around the top, but when she saw these, she knew that was what she wanted. Her's will have blue straps. We have an app't with her ortho doc with x-rays on January 27, so we'll be picking it up on that day instead of making a trip up there a few days before and then going back up a few days later. So, in a few more weeks, we'll have a new brace to show off!!
