Post Surgery Foot

I realized that I didn't post any pictures of Zeke's foot after surgery.  I have often heard people in the limb difference community say that a toe to finger transfer amounts to creating another disfigured limb.  However that is a bit relative.  In Zeke's case, his feet were unaffected by any congenital issues.  So we knew that removing a toe would change the appearance of his foot.  But the doctors do not lop off the toe and leave a large gap.  They instead adjust things and create the illusion of five toes.  There is a decent amount of scarring but I am cautiously optimistic that this will lessen over time.

With Jasmine, only one hand is affected and it's not real noticeable, but her feet are very noticeably different with missing and fused toes and a cleft in the bottom of her foot.
