I'd almost forgotten about this guy. While we were out working on the yard over the weekend my son brought out the giant caterpillar. I think we all can remember the joy of crawling though these things when we were a kid. Before we had a chance to put it away Ainsley surprised us by crawling through it. Not once but multiple times. After having her hips and legs cut apart and put back together I'm amazed that she can crawl this well already. It's been 3 weeks since she got out of the spica cast. She's been okayed to do whatever she is comfortable with. Unlike adults, kids listen to their bodies and when they experience pain they listen (for the most part). Dr. S. said she could resume crawling at 2-3 weeks post-removal. So the timing is good. I think she was in more pain following the last, much less invasive hip surgery (open & closed reductions). I am so excited, June 30th we have her follow-up appointment and I'm expecting to get the all clear to resume normal activity. I've let her take a few steps with me supporting 90% of her weight and it's interesting to see her steps are much more forward. I'm reserving judgement but hopeful to see how she does walking.
