Day One At Shriners

Okay so here goes. K has been in her brace already today and it went alright. She really doesn't like it and they are trying to get it to fit properly, but we are a little bit in shock. We just talked to the doctor and found out that K will probably be in this brace at least five years and even after that she will probably have to have spinal surgery (rod in her spine) to correct the scoliosis at the age of six. That is if we are able to keep it from progressing between now and then. Little much to take today. We were hoping this brace would fix everything, but there is the thought that it probably won't. It will just slow or stop the progression. There is the possiblity that it can correct it, but it is very slight. Needless to say, today has been a rough day, so far. We will keep all of you posted. Thanks again for all of the prayers.

Got disconnected. Just remember that God is in control and that miracles do indeed happen. I know that it is a blow today, but you still have your beautiful little girl to love and cherish. We all do. Praying for you all today! Love you guys!
