Ouch!...Reesa's Leg!

It has been a while since our last update and for the most part things have been going very well.  We've been taking Reesa out quite a bit lately to enjoy the amazing weather before its gets too hot.  On the weekends, Reesa loves sitting on restaurant patios while Mom and Dad have lunch.  We also had beautiful Easter brunch with Grandpa Jim, Houston and Kelsey.

Unfortunately this past Monday we had a little setback.  Reesa had a bad spasm while strapped in her stander and she broke her femur just above the knee.

We had a hectic afternoon, evening and night at Phoenix Children's Hospital and the next day Reesa had her leg set and put in a cast.  The doctor said she'll have the cast on for 4 weeks.

Since Reesa doesn't stand or walk her bones lack the density caused by weight bearing and gravity. She is going to do a bone density test when she sees Dr. Escolar in Pittsburgh in a couple weeks. Reesa has been strong, as always, and she's back home in good spirits.
