Hi Ev1,

My daughter Julee(8yrs) is having Hip Surgery on March 16th and I'm baffled as to how to dress her. The Dr. says she will be in a cast from the top of her thighs to just above the ankles with a bar in the middle to keep her hips aligned. The casts will be on for 4-8 weeks. We live in Manitoba Canada so right now its winter and some days are really cold. I don't want her to freeze or miss took much school.
If anyone has any suggestions or ideas we would love to hear from you.
