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...
…and no brace! “I’M FREEEEE!!!”
"What are these...
"THIS IS THE LIFE, YO...
Sorry back there, Grover. Your time will come.”
He still sleeps (and rests) with his legs in a frog-like position. Phantom Brace Syndrome, apparently.
