Jillian's possible hip dysplasia

She had her 4 month well check (more on that in another post) yesterday and Dr. Bo noticed asymetry to the fat folds in her leg, and that can be indicative of hip dysplasia (the femur--big bone in the leg-doesn't sit right into the hip socket, and it can cause a limp, or pain. If she does have it, there are braces that can help, and the amount of intervention needed depends on the severity.

She had some x-rays done yesterday and hopefully we'll hear something back today.

Keep her in your thoughts and prayers please!
