Ingrown Toenails

Logan had to have surgery on his two big toes because he had some really nasty ingrown toenails that were beyond infected and swollen.  He has also had a problem with the way he walks and since he was going into middle school (the bain of every tween's existence) I figured it was time to get it taken care of.  We found out that he doesn't have an arch which affected his walk.  The doctor recommended a special brand of expensive shoes and orthodics.  He has been doing a lot better with his walking and his toes are much, much better.  I was so proud of him because he had to soak his feet in epsom salt and warm water every morning and night for 15 minutes, plus wrap them up with Neosporin and bandaids.  He was definitely a trooper and I'm so proud of how he handled it.  My little boy is growing up :(.
