Summer is almost officially over, so we're trying to swim as much as possible, since it's GREAT physical therapy for Joy (and she LOVES it!!!) Here are some shots today from our afternoon at Mountain Park Aquatic Center pool. They have two huge waterslides (Joy did BOTH! and crawled up the two flights of stairs....)and a current loop that pushes you round and round. Joy loves it there! Her pin-holes are still pretty obvious....several folks asked what happened to her. Just another opportunity to educate others about LCPD!

Here are the latest X-rays (post external fixator removal) next to some pre-fixator x-rays. Interesting to see the holes in the bones left by the pins! Dr. Flanagan is pleased with the placement of the femur in the socket, now we just have to watch and wait for regrowth!

It is OFF!!!!! YAY! Now to deal with 6 weeks full time bracing......
Everything went smoothly this morning. Arrived at 6a.m., went into O.R. about 8 and they were done in an hour! We got to keep the fixator pieces, weighed 3.6lbs!! The brace took some extra adjusting/padding once Joy woke-up and pointed out where it hurt. We were home by 1:00! It really WAS an outpatient procedure this time! Now I think we're all going to nap. More pictures later. Dr. Flanagan said we did a great job, and not many families could handle the external fixator. :)
