The day we've been waiting for has arrived. It's the answer we knew was coming and now we can make future plans. We had Evey's one year appt with our orthopedist and her scoliosis has gone from a 43 degree curvature to a 60 degree curvature. She has what the MDs like to call a thoracic insufficiency. So yes we will be getting spinal rods through what they call the veptr procedure. She'll get those surgically placed in August and then we are in this for the long haul. Bad news is we are committed to surgery every 6 months for the next 14 years. That's at least 28 surgeries. Good news is the Dr here at primary's is one of the best in the nation and he helped develop the veptr procedure. Other good news is that this will hopefully help Eves to learn how to sit up. Hooray. The last good news is she's a champ and does surgery so well and Nate and I happen to really like the dessert bar up at the hospital so we'll all manage just fine.
