Prayers, please



Do you see that little darling walking across the room? You'd never know anything was ever wrong with her, huh?
Unfortunately, I'm worried that something is wrong. I noticed last week that her left leg (her HD leg) is noticeably shorter than the right. I've been checking regularly because I know it's a red flag--to check, I sit her against the wall and stretch both her legs out with her heels against my palm and her knees against the ground. Her left doesn't quite touch my palm and her knees are uneven as well. Today I called her ortho and talked to the physician's assistant, who scheduled an appointment in two weeks to do an x-ray.
We won't know what's up until we see the x-ray, but there is a possibility that her hip is coming out of the socket again--yes, even though she is walking. If that is what is happening... well... I don't even want to think about it :(
So please, pray for us and think of us!

Oh, I know how you feel. I am always checking Sage over and over again.

Definitely praying for her! When was her last hip check up? Sage goes every few months even though she has been healed since Nov.
