Allie goes in Monday to have her right hip repositioned. Her hip has migrated out of joint because her bones grow faster than her muscles. So, like a bow string pulled tight, her bones have too much tension on them.
What the doctor will do:
1) break and re-position her femur.
2) break her pelvis and re-shape her hip joint socket to receive her hip bone.
Allie had this operation done six years ago on both hips. Read this to learn about Allie's first go 'round with this operation. --> http://www.bryonmondok.com/2009/03/allie-status.html
