Big morning at Royal Children’s Hospital – Chiara beaming her light and love to as many people as possible! Good news – no plaster cast or operation required (*at this stage).
I’m always prepared for the but’s with Chiara’s medical issues.. so here it is:
Latest hip x-ray shows slight uncovering of left femur – potential to dislocate out of the socket due to crazily tight adductors. So what to do?
Treatment for high-tone cerebral palsy patients is to inject Botox directly into the muscle, relaxing the adductors to help with full range of motion. So we are now booked into see a new department in the next few weeks.
Still smiling though – and that is all that matters in this present moment xx
