      Hi Patrice,
      I have been thinking about you and wondering how you are doing.  That is great that Romany is pulling up and flat-footed.  Does his back heel bone feel down with the bottom part out?  This was always a huge milestone with the french method because they start using their own weight and gravity to assist in pushing the heel down.
      Here, x-rays are only done as part of a study comparing Ponsetti to French Method at 2yo (I think this is the age).  They are thought not to provide any useful info. since the ligaments, tendons, and muscles are the involved tissues.

      Hi all,
      I thought it was about time I posted an update. Romany is now standing
      and walking around furniture, most of the time he is flat-footed which
      is really promising! Haven't had much sleep lately with him cutting two
      teeth at a time..but you get that. I'm just so pleased he is standing
      so no complaints. Hey M'Liss can you tell me if it is standard practise
      over there to have x rays done? I kind off wish that I had thought of
      it earlier so as to compare the results know. Patrice
