A little piece of mind

Pin It Sorry for not posting in a while- we have been pretty hectic with moving, physical therapy, her new dynasplint, normal toddler life and our beautiful baby. Also I think i have put her blog on hold for my own piece of mind....I'm not sure what is going on with me lately, but everything with rorys leg is hitting me pretty hard lately. 

Rory asked me yesterday when zin will have to go and see Dr. Paley and I had to explain to her that Zin didn't need to see him because both of her legs are the same size.   Then, of course, asked me why her legs are different....I ask myself that every day!

I don't know what has brought the emotions on: if it is because I'm just completely sick of seeing my daughter cry during our physical therapy, her new  splint, or her reoccurring nightmares but whatever the reason Ive been in a complete crying mess about it all. I honestly think having Zin, who thank the Lord only has one doctor, has made me realize how hard things are with Rory.  Whatever the reason, I will see pictures if her surgery and cry and seeing her with her leg still not straightening is completely breaking my heart. 

Most children who had her surgery are well recovered by now and back to a "normal" cfd life of a toddler.  Rory has had a hard time and is still doing 4-5 physical therapy sessions outside the house per week, followed by three "stretching" sessions with me and dad each day, and now has a new dynasplint to help that leg get straight. It's the hardest thing for me to watch her go through all of this.   

Of course none of this seems to bother her too much.  She doesn't really like her "leg hug" but will tolerate it if we let her play on the iPad for a little bit. I just long for the day when this is all over, but I know we still have many surgeries ahead.

  1. Big hugs. It's so hard to see our loved ones, especially our children go through trials like this. Rory is one tough cookie though :) Love her resilience. xoxo P

  2. Just had a thought ... one day this will make her the best professional in what she wants to do ... can't you just see her as an awesome PT for children! I certainly understand the daily struggles you feel -- keep hangin' in there!
