The follow-up visit to Caitlin's Orthopaedic surgeon went well. Her surgery was a success. Everything looks great to her doctor.

He was a little surprised that she is still crying when she activates her leg muscles. He feels that the pain will disappear in the next couple of months.

When I picked up Caitlin from school, I was handed a letter to my doctor from her school PT. Apparently, Caitlin will no longer hold her trunk up when she sits at school. The PT provided tons of photos as proof. This problem pre-dates her surgery.

The thing is, we don't have the problem at home. Even at the doctor's office, she sat independently on the exam table for 20 minutes. She also sat in her wheelchair for an hour without needing chest support.

Since the doctor couldn't think of a medical reason for this problem, we figured that it might be behavioral.

My guess: Little miss figured out that she can get out of schoolwork by acting floppy. This is NOT GOOD. If she keeps it up, she's not going to Six Flags this summer.
