More Brace & Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday, Matt. Thank you for being such a wonderful husband and father. You are a gift.

The appointment today on Whitney's hip went okay. We will need to keep the brace on full-time for another 3 months and then reevaluate. We compared the x-ray from the beginning and that looks encouraging. The hip is definitely growing. However if you compare the x-ray from three months ago there are only slight changes. So, we are waiting for her body to kick in and ossify the cartilage above her femur. I am looking for a good picture to show you all what this looks like but I have not found a good one yet.

Enjoy your week.
