Great appointment for Cody!

Today we saw Cody's orthopedic surgeon. We had seen him back in November. At that point, he was just starting to walk.

He has not done any damage to his hips by walking which is good. Cody may or may not be a candidate for the surgery to put his hips in. He may have enough muscle function to hold them in. But then again, he may not have enough muslce function to hold them in. We could put him through all of that and it may not work so we're waiting to see. He won't have it past the age of 4. Probably between 3 and 4 from what he said today.

He said he has great balance while sitting so his hips being out are really affecting him! :) And of course he's walking with them out!

He was very happy with the progress Cody is making with his walking and his moving. A little while ago he was getting brave and even letting go for a few seconds while standing by the couch!

Thursday we go back to Columbus for Cody to get his ear tubes checked and to see about Connor getting them put in.

  1. We are going to children's on Friday. Too bad, we could've all had lunch. I'll get back with you about a good Saturday.
