Well, we went to the orthopedic surgeon today at Gillette, and they took an x-ray. Our doc came in, and told us that the bone has healed up very very well. She formed a nice calus around the fracture site , and it has succesfully closed the broken ends… So, he let us take her out of the brace for good. Gosh she loves it (stretching way out!), and she looks so much taller!!! Imagine that! Thanks for any thoughts, and prayers you may have sent our way!
