Today we took Jess to the Orthopaedic Surgeon that we were referred to by her Neurologist as she was concerned about Jess's hips and ankles.  The good news is that there is nothing wrong with Jess's hips!  According to the orthopaedic surgeon, the way Jess lies with her legs in a froggy position actually protects the hips and there is no chance of dislocation.  Jess's feet and ankles are a bit of a concern however as well as her hamstrings.  Her muscles are very tight which is what is causing her pain during therapy and why she is able to slip her foot out of her splint.  He has suggested that we start with the less invasive procedure which is botox injections in her legs and feet and put her in casts for two weeks.  Holding thumbs that this all goes well :/
