Two and a half years ago Ryan had surgery to straighten his legs. It worked beautifully. The problem now lies in his feet. Due to his low muscle tone, his joints cannot hold his feet in a straight position. This has become even more obvious as he's grown. Therefore, in May he will be having surgery on both feet to fuse a joint which will straighten and support his feet. Recovery will involve 8 weeks of casting (short casts this time!). Luckily for the second half of that time he will have waterproof casts.
