Hi there

Well, the long road is ending with surgery on Tuesday for DD15's spinal fusion. As you can read here, didn't think we'd end up here, but here we are. We are having it done at Lurie Children's in Chicago. Last check she was still sitting around 60 degrees thoracic and 30 lumbar, which puts her basically unchanged since end of March, but her back pain is much worse. She can hardly walk more than about twenty yards before she has to sit down. I'll be so glad when this is done, and as the surgeon said to us, we can get on with our lives.

Prayers, good wishes, fingers cross, whatever you got, appreciated. Scary stuff for us all.
