Not What I Wanted To Hear

I took Katie to the pediatrician yesterday for a routine check-up and found out she has hip dysplasia.

This was not what I wanted to hear. Rachel had it and through the help of traction, body casts, and a brace her hip was able to heal itself. We don't really know much right now, but will be meeting with the specialist at CHOP on Tuesday morning. We are hoping that going the brace route will work, without having to have surgery. Fortunately this condition is not life threatening. While I am worried and sad, I know it could be much worse too. We'll keep you updated.
