My little girl was called inspirational today and it made me well up. Some days I still have to fight those damned hot tears when we talk about DDH and today is one of those days. Not only has another blogger friend spent the day in A&E due to a late diagnosis of DDH but tomorrow we too will be back looking for a car space in that hospital we know way to well.
I know her hip is in and it’s not structural as we had xrays, ultrasound and blood tests only a couple of weeks ago. However something is causing the pain and the limping and no two year old should experience pain on a daily or weekly basis.
One thing that I can’t get out of my head is that it will be one year tomorrow since I first met Mr Majkowski our consultant. One year ago tomorrow he delivered a bombshell about how long her treatment would take. Erin had been diagnosed three weeks prior to this appointment but it was our first time discussing her treatment with the surgeon that I would place my faith, hope and tears in. I can’t believe that tomorrows appointment is falling on the same day and what’s more it is the same time as that appointment too. Can this bode well?
It is such a feeling of deya vu. The knot of anxiety has been building all day. I know that tomorrow couldn’t bring more shocking news than that appointment bought. I want to get this appointment out of the way but I’d rather it was on any other day!
Children with disabilities really are inspirational and it was so important to be reminded of that this morning.
