Spica Cast

An ultrasound on Tuesday revealed that the harness has not corrected Ambrose's displaced hip. He will now require a spica cast. The procedure to get him into the cast will require general anesthesia and (re)intubation. We had thought his hip was getting better because he started moving that leg and seemed much more comfortable with it, so we are very disappointed with this turn of events.
