    new surgery date yet?

    Hello Syd just wondering if you had any word on a surgery date since your last was cancelled & are your lungs getting stronger? Are there exercises you can do to help?

    My Ben will be going in on the 12th of May - kinda glad he doesn't understand -might freak him out.
    I am very excited for him but terrified of the unknown.
    Good luck dear... Nancy

    I am glad to hear they set you up with a new date... is there any exercises you can do to get your lungs stronger by then?? I hope it goes with no problems... we will keep you in our prayers.

    yes he will be getting rods but they will use traction first to pull him straight then insert the rods...hoping to get a few more degrees out... ya don't really like him getting the surgery but then again maybe he will be a lot straighter & his lungs & heart are getting a lot of pressure so it is really needed now...maybe he will actually be able to run some day

    talk again soon...Nancy
