o are we?

We are Iain, Sarah and Scott Parker, and we live in Bideford in North Devon. 

About this site 

There are two purposes for this site. The first is to allow friends and family who are scattered around the country and world to see how our family is getting on, and particularly so that "The Grannies" can see how young Scott is growing up. The second is to share our experience dealing with Scott's feet, as he was born with a foot deformity  - Bilateral Talipes Equinovarus, otherwise known as Club Foot. 

Scott has undergone surgery at 10 months old, and further surgery in June/July 2003, at the age of 2 1/2 years old. He spent 3 months in plaster casts each time and is currently (Summer 2004) on the waiting list for more treatment for a rather troublesome right foot. This is most likely to involve the use of Ilizarov (fixator) frames sometime in the next 2 years.

We've come a long way, and hopefully reading about our experience, and seeing photos of Scott throughout  this period, will be useful to other families going though a similar experience. 

If you would like to read about our experience so far with Scott's Talipes, then click here to read our story. (If you have visited before and read our story, but would like an update on how Scott is doing now he is out of casts after recent surgery, click here.) 

There are lots of photos too, many showing the feet before and after surgery as well as coping with time in plaster casts, so have a look in the gallery.
