Some Bad News

At Little Bear's one month followup x-ray revealed that his procedure was not altogether successful.  The femur is lower but not really in the joint.  Our doctor said that there may be some tissue blocking it, but she can't tell so on Thursday Bear will go in for a CT scan to help diagnose the problem.  One solution she mentioned was to maybe further shorten the femur.  I really hope not because that would mean another sojourn in a spica cast for Little Bear.

Little Bear is also still not walking and so he is being sent to physical therapy three times a week at Motts children's hospital.  That's not far but it is still a good 35-40 minute drive each way.  I'm so bummed about the whole thing.
