The surgery date has changed

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.

The x-rays

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.
