Update on Hannah

I spent yesterday (Tuesday) with Hannah. She was VERY agitated which is nothing new but of course when you have had major surgery, it is not very helpful. Hannah has never been one to leave band-aids or scabs alone. She ALWAYS picks them and this is no different. She managed to pull her bandage (protection) off in two places off her back and also pull out one of her wound drains! The nurse put some extra... read more

It’s been a tiring week getting ready for this trip as neither... read more

At that time the degree of the scoliosis was only 19%, and the doctor just told us to keep an eye on it as they do not do anything if it is under 20%. We all visit the chiropractor regularly and he said that regular adjustments could... read more
