Erika's hip starting hurting on Monday. I wonder if she is turning into a great weather predictor like her brother Tim and me??
We went to the doctor today, and they want to remove the plate and pins in her hip that remained from her past surgery. They also will be cutting away some bone on the bottom of one of her amputations that continues to cause her pain.
Not sure when this will happen, but it will most likely be after winter camp and before summer camp. :)
That is HER schedule. :) She lives from camp to camp. LOL
We showed Alli around the hospital today so she could see where Erika would stay. We went to the surgery floor, the inpatient room, the child life room and the therapy room. In the therapy room she became a "demonstrator" for some students on how kids with arthrogryposis feed themselves, and how she is learning to get up off of the floor.
She is so funny. She said, "I came to visit, not for therapy!" :)
She was a good sport!
SO, deep breaths and time for a new adventure! :)
