In July 2017, at 15 months old, our Eleanor "Ellie" was diagnosed with Developmental Hip Dysplasia. By the end of the month she had undergone a closed reduction and was placed in a spica cast for 16 weeks. She then graduated to a Rhino brace, something she still sleeps in every night. During this time we were supported by our friends and family in so many ways. We were also supported by the amazing team at Boston Children's Hospital. Participating in the DDH walk is one way for us to give back, connect with other DDH families and help educate. Hip dysplasia is something every child is checked for multiple times during those first precious months, yet the awareness (including our own) is very little.
