Gavins Clubfoot

Hello, this is our handsome son Gavin James. Gavin was born 6/5/17 and his foot looked slightly turned in, the nurses after delivery said it's nothing to be concerned about... just work it out, then the at home nurse came and was so shocked and surprised there was nothing about his foot in his file and started to tell me how in her eyes it looked like clubfoot and you should get a Dr appointment asap to see what they say.. so we took him to him Dr and she referred us to a orthopedic who then diagnosed it as clubfoot , so we started the casting that day, we were 3 casts in and his foot just didn't look right it looked so swollen and worse then it was, my boyfriend expressed his concern and the doctor just continued to say this is what happens with the clubfoot but to us it still didn't seem right, but we figured he was the doctor so he should know what hes doing... right? Well next week we go to get the tenonomy and my mom had told me about this group on Facebook about clubfoot mommas and on the way to his scheduled tenonomy I added myself and posted a picture of our sweet boy and something in me just posted a picture of his foot with the cast off while we were waiting for the numbing cream to take effect , immediately people were commenting saying don't let them cut it, it's not ready, it looks like complex clubfoot.. I was so alarmed by this, at this point the doctor was coming in, in less then 5 minutes to cut his ankle and stretch his Achilles tendon.. With all these concerns I refused them to do the procedure. I got a hold of a doctor who is well known and who specializes in the complex clubfoot, Dr. Dobbs and he says it has now turned into complex clubfoot.. he is practicing out of St Louis. We would be traveling from ohio to st louis to see this specialist to fix my sweet boys foot! The total cost of this procedure is 2,500 all the donations will be used for,  gas, travel, hotels , Dr appointments and  any donations would be grateful and so much appreciated
