Great News About Faith's Hips

It's Saturday morning and after a busy, somewhat stressful work week, I can finally take a moment to enjoy a nice cup of coffee while doing some writing. Sitting here, I am reflecting on the wonderful news we received on Wednesday. Faith's left hip has not pulled out any further from its socket!

On Tuesday, Rob took Faith to get her x-rays and then on Wednesday he took her to see the physiotherapist. Upon reviewing Faith's x-rays of her hips, the doctor could not quite believe what he was seeing. The hip looked like it was in the same position as it was five months ago. He was in such disbelief that he sent Rob and Faith back downstairs for another round of x-rays. Faith had to stay on the table in case the doctor wanted more shots taken. She laid there as patiently as she could for about 30 minutes before the doctor finally called them back upstairs.

The doctor may have been befuddled but we know that God is working in Faith's body and we give Him all the praise!

Even though her hips have remained stable, the doctor pointed out that getting the baclofen pump could still help Faith. Now that she is eating more and gaining weight, we feel better about going ahead with the decision. We will keep you posted!
