First Follow-Up with Dr. Shapiro

Casey John is doing good. We are so thankful to have friends and family who are keeping him in their prayers. He is his normal wild and crazy self. He has been on ibouprofen 2-3 times a day since we left the hospital two weeks ago and has been doing great. At our follow up today Dr. Shapiro said to keep him on the ibouprofren until the end of the month and then if he has pain treat it with ibouprofen for a week. We took “pictures of his bones” today (x-rays) also will be a routine thing so that they can monitor the bone growth in his hip. He didn’t see any changes so I guess no news is good news in our case. We will see Dr. Shapiro every 4-5 months for the next 3-4 years for check-ups and basically just to watch how his hip is growing and forming. So I’ll update here from time to time how he’s doing and after doctor’s visits. Until then….
