Happy New Year and Lily's Hips

Yesterday we got a 2nd opinion about Lily's hips. Her new doctor, we are so switching, said that her x-ray was measured wrong, the other doctor didn't take in to account that she was leaning to the side and that she wasn't standing. I thought this was the reason on was off so much. She also said everything was developing wonderfully and when she manipulated her hips the felt like a child without DDH and she was walking perfect for a child her age. We talked about her past treatment and I told her about not putting Lily in the harness as much as I should have and that the old doctor had us adjust the harness ourselves. She told me I did the right thing not harnessing her and that if it was adjusted wrong I could have done way more harm then good. I'm so happy I went with my gut and didn't put her in that thing, or maybe we just got lucky. Really it doesn't matter. We will have to go back at 18mo and get a new x-ray so things could change, and we won't be completely out of the woods till after puberty...but I think we are good to go.

I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year!

My sister had surgery for hip dysplasia 4 months ago, it wasn't pretty. I'm glad you're getting Lily checked out now. You're so doing the right thing.

Happy New Year to you and your family!
