Little Bella has captured the hearts of our family and everyone that meets her. We want to share her story with all.

Orthopedic Appointment

Bella had her one year follow up after knee surgery – a year of walking and jumping – and now jumping!  Who would have thought?

Of course, the poor baby was terrified.  Despite all of my reassurances, she is sure they are going to hurt her.  It’s really quite sad.

A bribe for Gigi’s cupcakes actually work!!  Usually you can promise her the moon, and she doesn’t care!  X-rays for a cupcake – win/win!

Her right knee is fantastic – granted the ugliest scar on the planet, but her knee is stable.

Her left leg, on the other hand, is knock kneed and her patella is “loosey goosey” (that is the technical medical term :) ).  So she continues in therapy and we continue to monitor that knee.  Doctor says if she has to mess with that left knee, she is not going to be a happy camper.

Look at this x-ray!  So proud of that straight leg!!!
