updates from ortho

Tristan is still having issues with his hips. The doctors were talking of surgery, but because of his ostomy, they don't want to risk it until it can be reversed (in December). Apparently they did not want to risk infection. So he is going to be in a brace hopefully that will help. They could not give him the usual brace for the hips due to his ostomy (the belt would have been right over his stoma) so he's in a medieval torture device (of sorts). I would post a picture of him in it, but he had a major poop blowout last night/ early this morning so I had to wash it (and still waiting for it to dry). In a way it is nice not having to deal with poopie diapers- but when the bag/ seal blows, it blows big time... Oxy Clean is an amazing product.
