Post-Op CT results

We ended up going back for her follow up CT after 3 weeks instead of 2 and her hip looks great! It's right where it should be. We met with Dr. Sucato whom you could tell was very happy for her and glad that the closed reduction was a success. He showed us the CT images and we could not believe it was the same pair of hips from 2 months earlier! So now we just pray that it stays put and that the developing bone in her left hip starts replacing that cartilage and catches up with her right hip socket. I have no doubt that if her hip looks this good after 3 weeks, that it will still look good in another 15. Could not be happier. She will most likely be in her spica cast up until the last of November or start of December (right around the same time I am due with her little brother!) Hmmm...I just might have to plan this birth. Not happy about that, but it will work out. Just want to have two healthy, happy kiddos when December rolls around. =)
