Well I'll be dipped.

Crystal here.

Huh. So word on the street is there's nothing particularly wrong with Jaida's hips.

The specialist said that she shows no sign of hip pain, her well-muscled legs and xrays don't show signs of hip displasia, and that Jaida's likely dealing with either back/leg muscle pain or else a problem with her spine.

We're probably going to be looking at some follow-up xrays or possibly an MRI of her back, and then if that turns up nothing, we'll be heading off to the physiotherapist to see if there's anything we can do.

So, the good news is, there's nothing wrong with her hips. The bad news is, there's nothing wrong with her hips so now we have to figure out what the real issue is.

Snuggles and SPESH-AL-ISTS

Crystal here.

Jaida and Heidi are becoming fast friends...when Heidi's not beating Jaida up, she's usually snuggling with her...

Jaida is with mom Kim today with the SPESH-AL-IST, er, I mean specialist. Hopefully we'll have a clear picture of how we can help Jaida with her hips by the end of the day. Our poor girl deserves a break.
