Life After Hip Dysplasia

After over four months strapped into a brace for 23 hours each day, Benjamin’s hip dysplasia is finally improved enough to start the weaning-down process.

AND HE COULDN’T BE HAPPIER ABOUT THIS.

He’s still in the brace for naps and bedtime, but his waking hours are now beautifully, wonderfully unrestricted. Here’s a little peek at how that went:

  • "What's that Ma?...

    …I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow? This is it, I can FEEL it.”

  • "It's OK Grover...

    …we’ll get through this together.”

  • Doctor's Appointment's Over...

    Doctor's Appointment's Over...

    …and no brace! “I’M FREEEEE!!!”

  • "What are these...

    …FEET?”

  • "THIS IS THE LIFE, YO...

    Sorry back there, Grover. Your time will come.”

  • And yet...

    And yet...

    He still sleeps (and rests) with his legs in a frog-like position. Phantom Brace Syndrome, apparently.
