Hello everyone, My name is Jack and I am 7 and a half years old.

I live in Hong Kong. I have recently found out I have Perthes Disease in my left hip.

I love to ride my HOY bike, race my BMX and go skateboarding. I play rugby and tennis too. I need to take a long break for a few years from these sports just now until my hip heals. But I can go swimming, kayaking and lots of other things.

I have to go to hospital on Tuesday so my doctor can help my hip stay in place. I have to have a femoral osteotomy.

I’ll be in hospital for 3 nights so the doctors can check on my hip. The doctor says I’ll be off school for 2 weeks. I’ll miss my friends and teachers a lot.

I’m going to try to write a diary so my me and my friends can keep in touch.

I’ll write more later. Bye
