I'm going to try and make this short. So... Carrie's having surgery in December to remove her hemangioma on her arm. I'm a little nervous but mostly excited for the surgery. Today we find out that one of her legs measures a full inch longer than the other which could mean anything from unequal growth to ligament problems to her hip being out of socket to scoliosis.

I'm crossing all my cross-ables that the plastic surgeon performing the hemangioma excision can order the x-rays because they want multiple x rays from the middle of her spine on down and that's going to scare the bejeebus out of my poor Carrie bear but since her PT and her plastic surgeon have no reason to communicate I have no idea if I can get him to agree to order the x-rays at the same time as the surgery. Please cross all your cross-ables that he can and I can get these x-rays without any traumatic experience for my sweet daughter.

Praying that Carrie will get the x-ray's she needs and whatever the issue is, it can be easily dealt with. You guys have enough on your plate already. for both of you.
