Re: update on Frankie
I'm sorry to hear the curve has progressed. My daughter wasn't in a cast at 5 as she was coming to the end of her casting by then, but children adapt remarkably well to them and I think she'll surprise you. She may have to learn to do some things differently, but she'll work it out and there'll be no looking back.
Good luck x
