We are cast FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wooohooo!!!  We are cast free!!!  The x-rays looked great and dr said take it off…so we happily took it off…Avery was super excited to get it off..she kept saying whoa…as she first started to walk..She will still have to sleep in it for another month..but I can handle that and so can she..This is pretty much behind us and we couldn’t be happier..We do have to go back in six months to take the screws out of the side we just did..but dr said it is a very simple procedure and is an out patient procedure. Thanks be to God for carrying us through this last year.

Here is a video of her walking out of the dr.s office..

Afterwards I took her out for a celebration lunch..she chose Chick-fil-A…

We also got a knee brace that we have to start wearing..She pops her knees out of place..and we are going to try to brace it..We cant do ligament surgery for the same reason why we couldn’t do it with her hips…it will more then likely not work and over time just go back to the same way…other option is bone structural surgery but we cant do that until she is around 10 or 11 he said..so for now we have to wait..so while we wait we figured we would try bracing it..Bracing it might work bc its suppose to keep it in place so it cant slide out..I am thinking if we wear the brace for awhile maybe she will get out of the habit of doing it so we don’t have to do any surgery..For the most part it doesn’t cause her any pain but there are times where she pops it out and cant get it back in and says owe..so then it does hurt her.. so she will wear one brace on each knee for most of the day...right now though I'm giving her a break from everything for at least a week…I think she deserves that!!
