What a relief!

YAY!!! Madi is in the clear!! I took her to her hospital appointment today to get her hips checked and she's all ok! For those of you that don't know, when I had Madison she was an undiagnosed breech (emergency c-section) delivery (sooooooo scary!!!!!) and because she had been in the breech position we discovered on the day she was born that she had dislocating 'clicky' hips. She had to wear a brace for the first 6 weeks of her life (I cried when they put it on her when she was only 2 days old) and it must have been so uncomfortable for her - it looked like this:


We couldn't take it off at all, had to bath her in it, put her clothes over it........luckily an ultrasound at 6 weeks showed that she didn't need it anymore but they told us she had to wear double nappies for another 6 weeks to be on the safe side - this stretched out to 12-13 weeks! Today they x-rayed her hips and at 4 1/2 she's now completely healed!!! I can't tell you how relieved we are. When we first found out they told us all sorts of horror stories like her needing surgery if we didn't treat it early....

Anyway (you're doing really well if you're still reading this!) it's all over now. I've got so many clothes I haven't been able to put on her because of the bulky double nappies - she's got a whole new wardrobe to wear!

(Couldn't resist another cute pic!)

Hope everyone enjoyed origin night (woohoo Qld!!).......

Until next time......byeeeeeeeee!!!
