We made a trip to Shriner's last week for a six month check up. As I suspected, our pal "Sparkle" needs an adjustment for height. She also needs a new foot since her current foot is almost 2 sizes smaller than the other.

This kid is so tough on poor Sparkle! She is so banged up I thought they would surely replaced the entire prosthesis. But no, they said Sofie will keep the socket (the part that used to be pink & sparkly) for a while. Imagine the girly's disappointment when she learned she would be stuck with the orange, scratched, stained leg.

Good ol' "Dan The Foot Man" to the rescue! He is going to let us drop it off one morning for the adjustment, new foot and give it a facelift while we wait.

Stay is going to be fabulous!


  1. Glad to hear "Dan the foot man" can give Sparkle a little renovation, or at least a makeover. ;) I've noticed Ping's hearing aids are going in almost too easily lately, and suspect she will have to get new molds taken soon. Funny thing how fast kids grow. :)

  2. Can't wait to see what magic Dan will perform. I imagine Sofie has, really been rough on it, haha. She is never still and always on the move in some way. Constant new adventures. Hopefully he will get something done to her liking. She has good taste ! Love, Nana Joyce
