We had to take Amelia to Dublin yesterday for her test on her hip to determine whether she needed the operation on it. For those who don't know Amelia was born with an underdeveloped left hip and no matter how they tried to improve the growth it wasn't working so her doc wanted to do a more indepth test to see if there was cartiledge around the joint or not. If there was cartiledge she wouldn't need the op and if there wasn't she would need one of 2 different op's. Turns out she has no cartiledge there which means she will need an operation. They are going to break her hip bone and bring it down to close the gap that is there. She will spend up to 3 months then in a cast from her knees to her chest while the bone heals. This will be done sometime over the winter. We got all this info in a five minute conversation with one of her doctors associates yesterday so we have a lot of questions that still need to be answered and we have an appointment with her doctor in 4 weeks to discuss all aspects of the op and the aftercare she will need. I am still trying to digest this as even though we knew there was a 90% chance of her needing it we still held onto the hope that she would fall into the 10% of not needing it. Just waiting for next month now to have all our concerns and questions answered.
