The waiting, it kills me

I apologize for the lack of updates, but there isn't much going on in the land of Madeleine.

She's being a typical 14-month old, I suppose. Curious about how things work, generally happy and occasionally prone to shrieking.

I am becoming increasingly worried about her lack of walking. She is still gaining strength in her right leg, but it is no where near the same as the left. She free stands fairly often, but won' t really take any steps on her own. When she does walk (with support) it's very lopsided and she needs support on her right side. She also tends to walk on the inside or outside of her right foot, with her ankle completely turned inwards or outwards. I know that she'll be walking when her leg and foot are healed and ready to support her, I just don't know how much extra support it will take to get to that point.

We have an appointment with the neurosurgeon on Tuesday and I should know more about the upcoming surgery then.

Awe....I hope you get answers soon. She'll figure out the walking, don't worry:)
