Hi Missy,

The doc's at CHOP did not think compression would work for my duaghter because her fingers were so small. They basically did not think we would be able to get it on her effectively. Columbia has always said we should consider it, but never really pushed the issue until our last appointment in January. Also, most of the places that make these custom garments (home med pharmacies) said they have never done it for someone Ruby's age. They also did not seem confident that it would work. Any advice on where to get the garments made, what type of material to use, how often it should be worn, etc...would be really helpful.

thanks again,
Mike B
