More Good News

We met with surgeron that be woking on Bear's hip.  She is hoping to schedule the surgery for some time this month.  Little Bear will be in a spica cast for six weeks.  A spica cast goes from waist to either knees or feet.  Six weeks is more than I'd like, but less than I feared.

She also said that Bear doesn't really have club feet.  He has something called rocker-bottom feet, and Dr. Farley said that it is related to the tibal hemimelia.  I got the feeling that she was surprised by the number of issues that Little Bear has. We're still not sure how treatment will proceed for his legs and feet. but we have time for all of that later. 

The last of my news is that we have been blessed with the offer of help from a friend's daughter.  She has not found work for the summer and is lloking to add child care experience to her resume.  Cheala may really keep our chestnut out of the fire in regards child care and keeping the house from exploding as we care for Bear.
