That’s a question Nicholas has been asking people these days. Apparently chameleons have fused toes like his mommy-Nicholas toe (the two that are together). So obviously he’s part chameleon! How could I not have known that.
Clearly Nick is in a good place right now. He’s been talking about how he likes that his foot is different. There were times in the past when he was really sad that Dr. Standard could not give him more toes but for now that has passed.
I am so proud of my boy! He amazes and so do his 3 younger siblings. I heard that at church on Sunday kids were asking Nick about his leg and Chris told them that Nick had stitches on the inside and the outside of his leg. I guess the stitches have left an impression on Chris. Who knows what other fun stuff Charlotte could share.
Silly stuff aside I think it is great for my kids to have this experience together. Nick knows he has a team behind him. If he’s part chameleon then the rest of us must be too and while we may not all have fused toes we are all pretty good at changing and adapting to what life throws at us. Call us the Curley Chameleons. Is that great a team name or what!
There’s still time to donate to the No Fibula No Problem Save-A-Limb page! Please pass this blog on so that others might be inspired by Nicholas and consider donating. I didnt write a lot on the donation page itself so please share the blog. Plus raising awareness regarding FH would be awesome! Most people have NEVER heard of it. Most orthopedic docs never encounter FH! Your donation need not be big $5 would be so appreciated! If you happen to ave been born with all the bones you need, as most of us have, then you have no idea what these kids go through. If you’ve never had a child born with a birth defect then you have no idea what parents like Steven and I go through but this knowledge is why I fundraise. I would love to make things easier for these children and their parents. I want them all to have access to the care their child needs but that just not reality. Save-A-Limb literally saves limbs! Show your appreciation for the body you were born with and donate to help others who are not so lucky.
