6 Week Checkup

Thursday, October 4, 2012

Sabriya went yesterday for her 6 week checkup and guess what, she can start walking on her leg again but not without crutches.  Dr. Karlen said that her flexibility is really good, he was giving her a really good stretch as you can see in the 2nd picture below.  And in the last picture below WALA she's standing...
Here is the x-ray picture of her hip... you can see 3 of the 4 pins (the long white things).  All the white cloudy looking stuff around the pins is new bone that is growing and this is exactly what Dr. Karlen wanted to see.  And because of that growth we can say BYE BYE to...

THIS!!! I certainly didn't mind waiting on Sabriya during this recovery time, I really counted it as a privilege BUT I have to tell you that I definitely will not miss lifting this wheelchair in and out,  out and in, of my car twice a day. WHEW this thing is H-E-A-V-Y!

And here we are back at school today with only her crutches.  Walking of course, or should I say putting pressure down on her foot is a little hard but she's doing pretty good.  Therapy will start soon...
