At Kate's orthopedic appointment on Friday, Dr. Prince looked at the x-rays and said she is looking better than she expected! The leg length difference had grown slightly closer together, so she felt that it would be best for Kate to learn how to walk without any extra assistance like a shoe insert or shoe lift. She said this summer when we meet again we will probably have her fitted for a shoe insert and then later we will get a shoe lift. Dr. Prince said it is common for leg discrepencies like this to change often as she grows. I am thankful that it has gotten better and not worse during a time where she is needing to be balanced the most (with learning how to walk). So that is the latest! Tomorrow Kate goes to her geneticist, Dr. Immken. It should be fairly brief as she is basically monitoring Kate's growth. God is taking care of our little Kate and she is in great hands at Dell Children's!
