Glad to hear things went well for Angela!! Recovery will be long and hard, but I'm sure she will do well. I still have the pictures they took of me just after the surgery and when I first walked post-op. I almost don't recognize myself. Because I was bed bound for 2 weeks after the surgery I dropped a significant amount of weight (most of it was muscle that was loss, because I wasn't being as active as I was before surgery. lol, duh!)

Do keep us posted on her progress. I'm rooting for her!!

:) She is still doing well had a rough night and day they had a time getting her vitals stabel. She is in a bit more pain today than she was yesterday, she dose not remeber much, she said to say hello to everyone and to let anyone coming up on their surgery that its not as bad as you think it is, it is rough but worth it she said. I got a chance to see her back today it looks beautiful :) :) :) it looks so strait and next to no curve :) :) :) :) :) :) have a great night I will keep you all updated.

Today she is in less pain, she has some discomfort from the chest tube and the area where they removed her rib, the Dr still has not had her up walking he wants to wait until the chest tube is which should br Thursday,She wants to get up bad and wall, Her back looks better and better every day her incesion is about 20" long from her neck to the crack of her but about 200 staples and she has another incesion from her chest around to her back with about 90 stapels in it. she appears to be taller but we will not be sure until she is standing. She said to tell everyone hello and thanks again. I will keep you post as she recovers.
