Another Surgery

I just got back home from flying to Michigan for a doctor appt with P.  We went to see a neurosurgeon who is supposed to be amazing and after getting so many opinions/ideas/diagnosis the past year she immediately said looking at her MRI that she is re-tethered to her lipoma and scar tissue.  It's hard to accept she is going to need another spinal surgery and we are doing it so far from home (omg $$$$) but her technique will be proactive in trying to prevent this again and that will be worth it in the end.  
P is not a happy camper and can be expected, surgery is scheduled July 18th. =\

Re: Another Surgery

  • I'm so sorry she needs another surgery!  But, maybe this will help with some of her leg issues and will ultimately make things a lot better for her.
    To my boys:  I will love you for you Not for what you have done or what you will become I will love you for you I will give you the love The love that you never knew
  • I'm sorry. I hope it goes as well as possible and that you all are able to get into the Ronald McDonald house or something to save $$.
