    I just want to wish your daughter a very successful surgery and a speedy recovery.

    All the best,

    Alex is 16 years old and in the 11th grade. He has congenital scoliosis due to a hemivertebrae at T10. Wore a TLSO brace for 3 1/2 years. Pre-op curves were T45 & L65; curves post-op are approx. T31 & L34. Had a posterior spinal fusion from T8 to L3 on 7/12/07 at age 12. Doing great now in so many ways, but still working on improving posture.
    Zach is 13 years old and very energetic.

    I wanted to thank everyone for their thoughts, prayers and best wishes. The answers, advice and encouraging words that I have received from this forum have been a big help.

    I guess reality is setting in with Lauren. She has been extremely quiet tonight. I just hope she is able to sleep tonight. We have to be at the hospital at 7 a.m. Hopefully, she will be the first case unless a younger patient in scheduled.

    Thanks again and I will try to keep you posted.
