We had our clinic appointment at 9:45 today with Dr. Standard, which means we saw him at about 11:15, which is quicker than usual. Anyway, we took standing xrays today, which is different than usual. And..drumroll please...no blocks under the fixator leg!!! Yay!! Woooo!(That just means, he's getting closer to even).
We are now at 4.3/4.4 cm of growth. Sweet!
|A Standing Xray! 4.3 cm of growth (he's crooked b/c he's holding on to me)|
One downer of the visit is that one of his pinsites is forming a "halo" in the xray. This means that it could be coming loose. The doctor says he'll keep an eye on it and if we need to, it'll just be a minor surgery to put him under and replace the pin. Yea, okay! I love how taking out a screw and sticking a new one into my son's femur is just minor surgery now!
So, all in all I guess our visit was good. We are hopefully going home for good this Friday. We need to have PT lined up at home. Let's hope our insurance gets moving and approves us for it really soon!
I think that's all I have to report for today. Sorry, I haven't updated since my venting rant last Wednesday. All good now :)
