Awesome update!

We had PT yesterday and Mrs. Stacy measured Dalton's ROM and he is within NORMAL RANGES on all of his ROM numbers!!!! HOLLA!! Every single one was in a normal range. Internal rotation was about 5 degrees less than "normal" but she said that anything off 5 degrees was still considered normal. Our goal is to keep it in normal ranges now. He has xrays next week and I'll be sending those, along with his super ROM #s, to Dr. Standard. I'm tickled over his ROM but I know that his xrays could also bring us trouble if they look much worse. Hopefully that won't be the case though. I'll update once his xrays are completed or once I hear back from Dr. Standard.

Thanks so much for all the prayers! We appreciate them so much!

  1. Go glad to hear you had an swesome update! My son is 5 1/2 and was diagnosed with Perthes back in May 2009. His ROM is severely dampered and PT has not helped. Surgery was suggested just yesterday and I came across your blog in my frantic internet searches.
