Hip Surgery: Hip dysplasia and Dislocation

It has been a while since we have done an update on Demi. That is simply because she has been doing so well that there really has been nothing to say! We are so grateful for this! In the past month or so we have noticed Demi was keeping her left knee bent consistently. A…

Demi’s Vision: What We Understand Currently

Demi’s update with her retinal surgeon went wonderfully well. He had nothing to report and that is what we expected. Her retina is stable as is. He bumped our visits back to every 6 months. We will see Demi’s ophthalmologist every 6 months as well. so she will end up seeing one of them every…

Post op Visit 1

Demi will have about 3 post op appointments until we can say her eye is healing without developing a cataract. Today, post op appt 1, she did amazing. She tolerated the patch and tape removal with hardly a sound. We put dilating drops in her eye and she was a champ! Her doctor said she…
