    Wow...wow...wow. I sometimes think Dr. Hey is overrated, but in this case definitely not. I appreciate the fact that he consulted with so many other doctors on this case. Nine hours is a very long surgery for Dr. Hey since he works very quickly. The man must have lightning hands to have done all that in that amount of time.
    Be happy!

    Now that my mouth had returned back to its normal position, (smiley face) I just wanted to say that Kayla sure got the best Christmas present that she could ever get.... At some point, it would be nice if you post at some point, we are rooting for you!

    You just had the best people on the planet get together and look at your spine and of course Dr Hey pulled it off which is pretty cool if you ask me....And I know it hurts right now, but soon things will get better...You did it! Congratulations!

    Many here have done full fusions, there are a ton of us. If you have any questions at all, please ask...your not alone in this.

    Things are going to be ok....

    Merry Christmas

    Of course she is reading......we all do. We all have questions....

    I read for years but didnít register.....I donít know why I didnít, its just one of those things I guess.

    Its hard to express feelings for some.....and hard to do on a public forum. Until readers realize that its ok,..... we are all the same you know?

    Communication is key. She will register some day.....after all, she is a scoli.
