Hip Dysplasia Surgery

We Signed Up For This

Cory and I have stayed up late every night this week. Both of us nervous talking in anticipation of today. The day Caloway has his procedure on his hips. I feel like I have talked about it and then talked about it some more. Cory said something Wednesday night though that I am clinging to: […]
