Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

Last Friday I took Alex to Children's to get an ultrasound done on her hips. This is standard procedure for babies who were born breech. Monday, Russ got a call from her pedi and she said one side looks fine but the other side is a little concerning. She may have hip dysplasia. She wanted us to get an appointment with a pedi ortho doctor to check things out and make sure there isn't anything wrong. If there is, she'll more than likely have to wear a Pavlik harness. Which seems to be uncomfortable for the babies, but its more of a pain for parents than it is for them.

Her appointment is on Monday, so we'll know more then. I'm not really worried about it. If she needs it to be corrected, I'd rather it happen now when she's a baby and not when she's a teenager or adult.

I'll be thinking of you. Hopefully, it's not as bad as they think.
