Yes, 3 years ago Amelia had her Open Reduction surgery on both hips to ensure her hips were in place and developing as expected. As always we had to arrive half an hour early to allow time for X-Rays – which Amelia aced! As you can imagine, the amount of time she spends in hospital, […]Read More 3 years… post op review!
So I haven’t updated the blog since April, 1. because we’ve been extremely busy and 2. I’ve not have much to update you on. But a year on from learning to walk is surely something to celebrate? So as well as everything else, and as if we wasn’t busy enough, I had to have my […]Read More A whole year on from walking including LOTS of fun.
A whole year?!!! Where has the time gone. This time last year we were at the hospital waiting for our daughter to come back from theatre following Cast Off. She was placed under general anaesthetic for Cast Off as our consultant also did an arthrogram at every stage of our journey. We are so grateful […]Read More A year on from Cast Off.
So if it doesn’t feel as though we already go to 100’s of appointments, what’s 2 more to added to the mix… Friday myself and Amelia had our regular dentist appointment for a checkup, and it appears Amelia is completely used to going into strange health rooms as she aced it. She walked in, watched […]Read More 2 year old review and a trip to the dentist…
So the boys were absolutely fabulous and managed to complete the winter Nuts Challenge on Saturday 2nd March in 2.5 hours. We managed to raise £200 for DDH UK a charity that was our life line when Amelia was going through her hippy journey, and I still have a very close relationship with a lot of […]Read More The winter Nuts Challenge… completed it
This Saturday 2nd March, I was meant to be competing in the Nuts Challenge with Luke (Amelia’s dad) and his friend James but unfortunately due to my own hip issues I will be unable to join in. That said, Luke and James will still be competing. We are raising money for a charity close to […]Read More The Nuts Challenge for DDH UK
So as you all know it was our 1 year review since Amelia’s first Open Reduction at the end of January and all went as well as it could have, and we’re mega happy. It’s sometimes tricky to believe something when it’s just in a conversation but when you receive a follow up letter of […]Read More It’s so much better in writing!
So yesterday, 21st January 2019, was Amelia’s 1 year review. Leading up to it, I felt so anxious, sick, nervous… No matter how long into your journey with DDH the appointments with the consultant and check ups never get any easier. I was trying to keep myself busy all day leading up to the appointment […]Read More 1 year on and Amelia is still kicking Hip Dysplasia’s arse!
This last year hasn’t been the easiest, but we’re a year on from Amelia’s operations and all has been ok so far! Her hip reviews, x-rays and appointments with the consultant never get any easier for me, constant worry, stomach turning, anxiety at its max and pure worry. I lay in bed every evening thinking […]Read More A whole year on, and still sh*tting it.
Today I’m not quite sure how I’m feeling… a whole year since I felt so helpless, heartbroken, sad, angry. A year ago today Amelia went for her first of two Open Reductions, this one on her left leg. The dirty kneed, urine soaked pink cast has not been missed one bit. Every time Amelia see’s […]Read More 1 year since Amelia’s first Open Reduction
