Hi i just want to thank you all for all the advice and help you have given Brittany, she has fretted over this surgery for a long time and knowing how her curve has progressed just these past two years she realizes it is time to get it taken care of. i have a cd that the Dr. gave me i will locate it and post it tomorrow it was taken when she first went to Dr. Greene two years ago so her curve is worse now. her dad and i will be here to help her through it all. it is a big surgery but her dr. have been great at answering her questions and explaining the surgery. I know you all have helped her greatly and i can not thank you enough i have been told by britt that i have to keep you all informed during her surgery and recover. thanks again britts mom :)

That was so nice of you to post! We are very happy Brittany thinks we've been a help! :) This is such a big time in anyone's life, and all of us have either already been through it, are about to go through it, will at some time go through it, or are at least weighing our options-- or someone in our family is in that boat.

That's wonderful that you'll keep us posted on how the surgery goes and her progress in the early stages of recovery. After a little bit, she may be anxious to get online herself... although most of us have had some problems with keyboards being all cattywampus when we were on pain meds. :eek: I hadn't found the forum then, in my own case, but kept telling my daughters that this laptop had problems with its keyboard-- it was too small, the keys weren't normal, etc. :rolleyes: But even if she has problems, we'll be delighted when she's back to being able to post again. We'll appreciate all the updates you can give until then. :)

In the meantime, we're sure thinking of your family and will be praying for a very successful surgery and relatively quick recovery! It's so good that you'll be there with her, helping her through this rough time. Hugs to all of you! :)

you know as a parent you can only tell your kids it will be ok but until they go through somthing we are all just parent's who never were young :0 so you all have been there done that and there for she can relate to better then me just saying it will be ok. God has blessed me with a job at the high school where i am able to take the last of school off and then have the full summer to stay with britt. we all know it will be some long hard weeks on all of us mostly britt but rest assured she will not be alone. thanks again to you and everyone else.
