Yesterday we took Callie to her hip appointment at Children's. They did an ultrasound on both sides and she was so good during it. At one point she even fell asleep. The lady said she didn't think that she had ever had that happen before...that's our sleep lovin girl!
We found out that she does have Hip Dysplasia in both hips. Basically that means there is a problem in the formation of the hip joint. On a mild-moderate-severe scale, we were told she is mild to moderate on both sides. Of course this is not the news we were hoping to hear, however we are very thankful that this is something that can be fixed.
Today we heard from our pediatrician who referred us to a Center for Pediatric Orthopedics. We called them and should be hearing back tomorrow to let us know the soonest we can get her in. She will be fitted for a Pavlik Harness that she will need to wear to help properly position her hip joints. All the details on that (how long she will be in it, how often she will need to wear it, etc.) we won't know until we meet with the ortho.
Like I said before, we are so thankful that this is something that is treatable and that she is young enough that she won't even remember going through it. I will document her progress here as we move forward with everything. Thank you for the prayers, emails and phone calls the past couple days.
