    1st day at school wearing her brace

    Amb has scoliosis, she has progressed enough to need a brace ...with hopes to stop the progression and avoid surgery. Started wearing the Boston brace

    Today was the first day she wore it to school..she was fine with I was in tears after I walked her to class. I am proud of her ...she joked if anyone gives me trouble...I got rock hard abs ( meaning the brace). Good for her for being brave and making jokes. I took a peak in her first class and saw she was showing her friends her brace and explaining it.

    Her friends stated that they admired her strength and faith. because even though she has D and this brace she doesn't complain...she is strong and brave.
    (proud mom...ducks out before being seen)

    You know one thing D and scoliosis has taught empathy, inner strength, discipline with food and posture, and yes a strong faith...prayers... many prayers for wisdom and healing.
