On Monday, September 19th, Mia had her follow up visit, post surgery !! The visit went very well !!!
Dr. Heflin (did I mention how much we love him ??!!!) ;) was so very pleased with how well her hip looks, and how great she seems to be healing !!! Oh, here's a pic of our fabulous doctor with Mia.....

Giving Mia this break, will also allow the hip to get some usage, and help her to regain some range of motion in it, before immobilizing her again for another 2-3 months with the second surgery. Hopefully, this will help strengthen those muscles, and keep the atrophying to a minimum. I can hope !!! ;)
If the pain she has continues, I'll have no choice but to call the good Doctor back, but hopefully, we're making progress and that won't be necessary !!!
We want to thank everyone for all of the gifts, cards, letters & most importantly, prayers, that you have sent, and continue to send !!! You have made her smile more than once, and this of course, makes Daddy and I smile LOTS !!!
We love and appreciate you all, and as always, thank you for being a miracle for our Mia !!!!
With a Mommy's grateful and humbled heart,
