Philly and Home and School!!

Cheerleaders playing at RMH

They always find someone to play with :)

After and Before!! If you look at her lower leg on the right xray you will see how knock kneed she was! for the previous 2 weeks we were turning a different screw to move the knee around. If you look at the left xray you will see that the 4 pins are now parallel!! The only thing is that by moving the knee and lower leg around (it hurt her!!) but her knee is very sore while walking since she is walking completely different. The other problem is that it forced the femur bones to overlap, So we now have 2 more weeks of turning the leg lengthening screws at 2x's the previous amount to make it up and get the length we need. She is close but we need the bones separated. but her hip looks great!

The girls playing with Madeline, their buddy :)

all of us at lunch!! 4 UA beauties!! LOVE getting together with other AMC families :)

Gerri and Fuxia having a conversation :)
 Gerri was very happy to have the lift on her shoe completely shaved off!!! Yah! she can wear her sneaks again and can now wear any pair of sneaks!!

The moon rising over the MA Pike on our way home.
We left Philly right after lunch, around 1 and made it home at 6:00! fastest trip ever!!

Gerri's release to go back to school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tuesday after school we all helped Daddy with the newly split fire wood
If you look close you will see Gerri sporting brand new sneaks!!

WOW!! and we have to buy another pair of brackets to build another log holder

YAH!! we are going to school tomorrow!!!

Gerri has her meet and greet with the kids new pediatrician on base. She was SO nice!
She has never treated a child with AMC and was looking forward to being part of her treatment. She was very impressed we go all the way to Philly for treatment :)

This is how we found Victoria after bed last night - right inside their bedroom door

Gerri was SO excited about going back to school she was awake at 6 and I could hear her singing in the bathroom getting ready :) :)
