The Best News EVER

We received the best news EVER at our daughter’s last hip appointment at Crumlin Hospital in Dublin. I’m so excited to share this with you – my wonderful readers who have been following our journey.

But first, a little background. Our daughter was diagnosed with hip dysplasia at 4 months old & was put into a brace on the day of her diagnosis. I wrote about our experiences in My Baby’s Hip Dysplasia. I talk about how hard it was to manage her in the brace & how it created a physical barrier between us. It was emotional & upsetting.

We have had so many appointments & check ups over the past few years. When our daughter was too old for the brace, her right hip was still a little off where it should be. We were left without any appointments for a year. The plan being to leave her to run & play which would hopefully help her hip right itself the rest of the way.
