    hi ann
    sorry your daughter has to go thru this, but i am sure she will come
    out of it fine...kids heal so well and much faster than adults in general...

    wondering where her fusion will start/end...???

    in terms of planning...have you spoken to her school to let
    them know what she will be going thru, what she will need afterwards...??
    she will be entitled to temporary provisions...she can be classified as
    temporarily handicapped by her doctor, so she can get home instruction
    if needed, certain adjustments at school in terms of going thru hallways,
    scheduling, gym class, etc....medically handicapping conditions can be
    started and ended with doctor say so. She can get a 504.

    best of luck...
    jess...and Sparky

    Thumbs up Recovering...

    Dr. Gupta is a ROCK STAR! Shriners Children's Hospital is the best. Thank you all for all your support and for all of your recommendations nearly everything came in handy. She has had quite a bit of pain in her left leg but overall she is making improvements every day. She went from an "S" surve of 2 over 50o and now she is straight. Still on around the clock pain med but ready to titrate off.
