Update on Little Bit

We went to the orthopedic doctor Monday morning. We had an ultrasound done on her hip and then went to Tucker's doctor. He said the joint is in place, but it's shallow. They describe it in percentages. They want it to be at 60% coverage to get out of the harness. Her joint is at 45%, which he said is still pretty shallow. He does ultrasounds once a month to check the percentages, and he said he thinks it'll take at least 2 months to get her to 60%. We'll go every two weeks until we get to the right percentage. Two weeks check with the doctor to adjust the harness for her growth, then two weeks after that, ultrasound to see if maybe it's gotten there quickly. Then repeat that cycle until it's fixed. Until then, we get to take her out of her harness every other day long enough for a bath (10-15 min only). We did this for the first time last night. It was her first bath that was more than a sponge bath. She seemed to enjoy it very much (as did we). It was especially nice because after almost a month of only sponge baths, and three weeks of sponge baths around the harness (that has gotten a considerable amount of spit up on it), she was starting to be a little gross. Now she's our sweet smelling, soft little girl again! :-) Here's some pics from the bath. Can't believe how much she's grown!!! (It was hard to tell with the harness on, since she can't straighten out with it on.)
Man how I missed those feetsies! I can't believe how much they have grown since I last saw them!!!

She's gotten so much longer already!!!

She was so happy after her bath! What a sweet girl!!! (And my goodness how great her skin smelled and felt!) Boy had I missed that sweet little body. I didn't realize just how much I was missing it!
