Evie K. opens her mother Maddie Brush’s eyes to a new world
Maddie Brown Brush admits she had “no idea” how much effort went into getting a prosthetic. She suspects that there was a time when she envisioned a person showing up to a place, picking out a prosthetic they like in the way a person shops for things, and leaving with it.
With her daughter having a prosthetic leg, Maddie Brown Brush knows the truth. It isn’t a simple, easy, or quick process. Turns out, there is a lot that goes into getting a prosthetic. And, she decided to educate her followers on the complicated process.
The TLC personality admitted it “makes sense” that getting a prosthetic isn’t as simple as just going to the store and picking the right one as everyone’s body is unique. So, it stands to reason that this is something that would need to be custom-made. Not to mention, her daughter Evie is growing like a weed, so Maddie is constantly finding herself with a need to get a new prosthetic leg because her daughter has outgrown the previous one.
Maddie admits it is not uncommon for the process of getting the prosthetic properly sized and custom-made to take anywhere from a month to a month in a half. Then, she still has to bring her daughter back to the doctor regularly to make sure everything still fits and works properly.
“we usually have follow-ups to ensure the new prosthetic is fitting correctly and not rubbing the wrong spots on her leg. We also see the surgeon to make sure there is no problem with fit, and ours often checks Evie’s hips.”
She concluded: “Evie’s limb difference does not slow her down. I’m grateful to live in a world where prosthetics are available and we are privileged to have access to them. It looks different, but she isn’t different. If that makes sense. She can run, jump, dance, climb, and play just like EVERY OTHER 3-year-old.”
