Thanks MJB, my daughters surgery and post-op went quite well the spica cast is off 3 days now and she is crawling around and happy as a clam. There is some stiffness and unfortunately the surgeon found a previously undiagnosed femoral antiversion (twisted femur) intraoperatively. This did not show up on the surgery and Dr Wedge has said that this would have caused difficulties later if not corrected. For now we hope it will improve, but she may need further surgery at 3-4 years of age to correct the additional condition.

All the best in your recovery!!
