We just got a request from the surgeon to change the date of the surgery to Monday June 23rd. Not a big change, but it is a little closer. The good news is that this will not affect her school schedule since her last day in June 18th.

To get an idea to how bad Angie's back is getting, take a look at these two x-rays. The first one was taken in August 2010 when she was first diagnosed with scoliosis. We tried putting her in a back brace but that didn't work out. There was no improvement and it was uncomfortable for her to wear every day.
The second x-ray was taken in February 2014. Her doctor was amazed at how fast it has progressed in just three and a half years. It's beyond having a back brace help, so now we move forward to surgery.
