Pediatrician's visit

Well - it's probably not something everyone would write about - but this is about a diary for Ebony and I want to 'document' everything that happens in her little world that I can.
Today we saw our Pediatrician and he was absolutely delighted with Ebony - he hadn't seen her for some 15 months and she has come such a long way in that time. He feels she is actually quite gifted in her ball handling skills (which we thought too).
One problem though. Her left side of her body has always been just a little bigger than her right - especially her right leg. Well, he measured her and has decided that she needs to see a specialist at the RCH (Royal Children's Hospital). Her left leg is actually 2cm longer than her right and it's obviously (to me) larger around the calf too. So, now we wait for an appointment and then we see where we go from here. I'm not thinking a lot about it because I would only worry - I'll just shelve the thoughts until I see the specialists. I'll let you know when that happens.
