For the past 8 months Emilia's leg was slowly being lengthened . Yesterday she had her external fixator removed . Her right leg is now the same length as her left leg !!! She is so happy .
The plan was to remove the ex fix and insert a rod into the bone from the hip to ankle for support, but this was unable to happen because she had an infection in the bone from the pins. So now the plan is to stay in the full cast for 8 weeks and then re evaluate her leg and maybe insert the rod in 8 weeks when the infection is clear.
Her future will require several more operations on both legs and her arms but she has such a positive attitude , she never complains and just keeps smiling .
Happy , Happy , Happy just to have a leg like everyone else .
