Does anyone on here have or has had a child with legg perthe's diesease?

I am interested in knowing how other parents are dealing with this. My child was just diagnosed with this a few days ago and within a couple of weeks she will have to start wearing leg braces 23 hours a day for 2 years. She won't be able to stand, walk or run, even for the hour she's not in the braces. My child is a VERY active 4 year old with down syndrome. This just breaks my heart to know, she won't be able to be mobile for so long. Any comments would be appreciated, thank you!~
