Thomas had his appointment today with the orthopaedic consultant and the conclusion is that both legs aren't quite right.
His right hip/socket isn't aligned properly which is making him walk with his foot turned out (think 10 past 2) and his left leg, which is the one he broke, is definitely longer than the other.
He's going to be referred for physio and will also have a wedge fitted that he can slip in his shoe. Lord knows how he'll go on with that, we have enough trouble with labels, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
We've also been warned during the next 4-6 years when he'll grow the most, there is a slight chance his hip could possibly pop out of it's socket, although it's a very rare occurrence so I'm not overly concerned about it. Another bridge we'll cross if we have to.
And I can't help but wonder if any of this will affect his burning desire to be a policeman but once again, if it does, we'll cross that bridge in due course.
When we arrived home our neighbour had taken in a delivery for Mark. He's bought another boat. This one is a bit faster than the tug and can reach a speed of 30 miles per hour. Being the dutiful and interested wife that I am, I'll probably go to the lake with him and Ken in the next few weeks to see it in action.
I was dusting down the shelves in the games room this morning when I found a lonely Easter egg lurking at the back, so I indulged in a bit, (OK one full half), of choccy heaven.
Knitting was the craft of the day. See how tidy it all looks in my new pink box. I keep taking the lid off to look inside!
And it was really interesting to read all your favourite programmes. A lot of the same ones cropped up. Tonight it's 'The A Word' which I really like, but as I said to MMC I can't get my head around the fact that Joe's parents seem quite happy for him to wander down those country lanes all by himself.
I know it's only a programme but I always tut and think what irresponsible parents. Who in their right mind would let any child do that. And it riles me even more that they just sit outside waiting for somebody to drop him off back home.
Anyway, moving on, I've just made myself a cup of Berry Burst with Vit B6. The only one left to try now is the licorice. Rachel wrote such a descriptive post about how horrible it is that I've been bracing myself to try it. Tomorrow might, (I'm making no promises though), be the day. I'll let you know.
