If you are family, and are reading this, and haven't spoken to us, we apologize profusely for not calling. But I have a note from the doctor. One that reads, "Please forgive Kevin and Libby. Shortly after meeting with the pediatric orthopod, they both had a stroke."
So, just to get you all up to date, Scarlett's pediatrician noted at her 15 month appointment that her hip felt a little loose. "Some people are loose jointed" he assured me, but then proving once again, why I *heart* him, said "I'd still like to have someone else take a look."
Scarlett was diagnosed today with DDH, or Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip. Her left hip is not in the socket. Caught relatively early, it is still going to require surgery, and then casting. The really crappy part of this treatment is the latter. She will be in a full body cast [from mid-chest to toes] for 3 months.
Surgery is scheduled for the 10th of March. This is where [and you'll have to trust me on this one] it gets funny. Remember when I said I was looking forward to March, and that I had broken up with January, and was barely tolerating February?
We'll see you in June.
