Hip dysplasia

June 19th 2015 - 13 days old

Well it's official. After receiving a call from my midwife, Eli's images from the ultrasound show that he has hip dysplasia. We don't know how bad tho. She said he will probably have to wear the pavlik harness for 4-8 weeks, but we don't know. She sent a referral into Dornbechers children's hospital to have Eli be seen by a specialist. Now we wait again for the call from them...
I could barely get through my conversation with her before breaking down into tears. One Google image search of the pavlik harness made the tears come hard and fast. Now they won't stop.
