When we saw him around 2ish, after xrays, we heard all was good! He's grown half an inch in 10 days of turning. The bone growth looks good and he's weight bearing well. He's mister independent.
I don't know how long we'll be down in Baltimore.
We know he needs physical therapy 5 days a week during the turning phase, 3 days a week when we are done turning just waiting for the bone to catch up and heal together. I don't know if we'll find a place close to home that is nearly as good as it is here. They do video tape the session to show any local therapist. It's just a matter of finding a therapist that works with pediatrics and knows what they are doing.
Here are his xrays from before surgery on July 21st and from yesterday's visit, August 5th. Pretty cool!
