They Came! Woo Hoo!
Got the little envelope in the mail and boy was I excited. They are seriously pink - check out the picture! I'm a little worried that they are either too loose or don't go up high enough on her calves. She wanted to ride her new bike from Santa and I know biking is good for LE legs so I made her put the stockings on first. They kept sliding down her legs while she was playing and throughout the evening. I know when we measured her therapist said that for comfort the tops of the stockings should be two finger-widths below the joint of the knee. I'm just wondering if that is for an adult and not a child--the stockings act like they are fully covering the calf, you know, going past the curve of the calf so that they won't roll down her legs.
She was light wrapped for bed last night and as soon as we got up I put her back in the stockings, with a few changes. I left her toes wrapped from overnight because they were VERY hard when I took the stockings off last night. I covered the toe wraps with little girl knee highs (regular panty hose) to keep them together and slid the stockings over that. She was able to mostly get one of them on herself, another things that makes me wonder... I'm glad they're easy to get on, but wonder if maybe it's not just a little too easy.
We're off to see the therapist now that the stockings are here and we'll get her opinion.
