So today we received some of the best news I have heard in a loooooong time! Addie had an appointmet with her orthopedic Dr. and we were to find out if she was going to have to be put in a cast for her hip dysplasia. We started out by getting an ultrasound and they told us that the left hip was 100% better and in it's socket. They were having a hard time getting a picture of the right hip but after the ultrasound tech and the radiologist looked at the pictures they determined that the femoral was not in it's socket. Of course we were dreading our appointment with Dr. Klatt because we really didn't want to hear that our baby had to wear a cast for the nest 12 weeks. We waited for the Dr. for over and hour and it was TORTURE!!! He finally came in with this horrible look on his face like he was about to drop the bomb and then he examined her hips. To our surprise and his, he thought that the hip felt like it was in it's socket. Then he got the head Dr. to come and look at it also and he thought the same thing. They then told us that she did not have to wear her hard brace anymore and is back to her soft pavlik harness. She has to wear it for 4 more weeks and as long as the hips stay in their sockets, she will be done with it on March 22!! We are so happy and grateful and want to thank everyone for all their thoughts and prayers! Whoo hoo! Today was a GREAT day!!!
