Ok my daughter is going in to have surgery on her hip on Tuesday (your thoughts/prayers are appreciated).

Regardless, my wife has posted a thread on her "Mom/Parenting" msg board and letting them pick the color of my little girls cast. Please see LINK

So I thought I'd call on the collective throbbing brain of ATOT to counter their girly picks. So vote away please!

FYI: this is a "full body cast" stretching from her chest down to the tops of her toes that she will be wearing for ~13 weeks She will get 1 cast change half-way through: PICTURE thats not my little girl though... (hers should not have that cross brace (praying))

If its not too personal.. can we find out whats wrong with her?
No prob at all Twinkle... I should have put it in my original post.
She was diagnosed with hip displasia (LINK) at her 2 month check up. We've gone through a series of braces and such but at the last (and final) check up it really hadn't gotten any better... so surgery is the "last" resort at this point.

Its nothing HORRIBLE per se (theres a million worse issues she could have had), but when its your kid, even a bruised knee can make you worry.

My daughter has had 2 casts, one for her forearm and one for her entire leg. She went with purple for both so I voted purple for your daughter. :)

Why does you little girl need such a monstous cast Homer? :( (thanks for answereing this question while I was asking it :) )

The prayers are already sent. Just ask and it shall be given unto you. Anyways why not black. It hard to get black dirty.

If anyone cares, the final decision was given to the doctor. We told him "Blue or Purple... surprise us"

And he slapped a big fat purple one on my little one. The good news is that he left her left leg un-cast and it only goes down to her ankle on her right so that was somewhat of a relief.

Little girl is doing fine and is happy as she was before... albeit a lot heavier.

HAHH yeah. You guys picked blue, my wife's poll picked purple... so we let the Doc choose.
She does get a cast change in 6 weeks, so we'll go blue then.
