    Mandy has been up 4 times today and is hoping to go home tomorrow.
    If you not familiar with her story you can read it in the adolescent forum. I did not realize it was for children only.

    That's fantastic. She only had her surgery 4 days ago! You must be mightily relieved to have this behind you and having Mandy doing so well so quickly.

    Did she get a good correction? Is Mandy happy with how it looks?

    Continued prayers and best wishes to you and Mandy. Love your signature - have a refrigerator magnet with the saying - a daily reminder for me :-)

    Got the dreaded shower and hair washing done today. We are both exhausted. It was worth it though.
    She found that her computer chair is comfortable with a pillow in it for meals. We are slowly getting there. Measured her incision and it's 13 inches. Looks like 2 -3 inches in height gain. Dr did not say what degree of correction we got.
    Thanks for all the prayers. We continue to pray for all of you as well.
