Yeah, I'm sorry to hear about your son, I've got to imagine it's very difficult for you (both) to go through but I'm sure everything will go great & it will be beneficial for him. Dr. Newton seems caring yes, I think more than anything he's probably just hesitant to say too much being that my daughter is so young & it's idiopathic, I think he's probably still questioning her case too & wondering if his positive outlook on it straightening is accurate. I sure hope so and I sure hope there's no underlying cause, only time will tell though so I'm doing everything I can to prepare in the meantime.. Thanks for you input & conern!
