Can I get a WOOOT?!?!
Ok, so on 5/11 his measurements were as follows:
flexion 90 (normal is 120)
abduction 15 (normal is 50-60)
external rotation 25 (normal is 70-90)
internal rotation 10 (normal is 40)
WOOT! The internal is still pretty tight but at least we have some improvement!!
Now let's just hope that the xrays on 7/6 show that the hip is going back towards the socket and not out anymore!
We are still dealing with some pain...he's been pain-free the past two nights (and he hasn't wet the bed so I know that his accidents are directly related to his hip pain!) If he has pain then he wets the bed...no pain=waking up dry! This holds true for daytime accidents too!
He's started having some pain..which I guess I could describe best as an aching pain..during the daytime. It's usually late afternoon and he'll whine and cry that it hurts. This has just started this week. I know pain is a very normal part of perthes, but it's still hard when you know it hurts them.
Anyway, today we are celebrating improved ROM!!! Thanks for praying, God DOES listen!!!
Here are a couple pics of his PT today...with his beloved Mrs. Stacy.
