We seen Dr. Walker on Thursday and discussed the upcoming surgery. After seeing x-rays he has decided to replace the lower half of the growing rod to make it longer. He will reconnect the rod to the pelvic bone and add a clamp to help keep it in place. Trinity will more than likely be in the hospital for at the least one night. Her curve was 66 degrees on Thursday. This has gone up about 10 degrees since she got the rod in October of 2011. Nothing to be overly concerned with. He would like to get as much as we can out of the growing rod until we have to resort to something else.
Please pray that all goes well on the 31st and for Dr. Walker and the nurses that will be taking care of her. We appreciate all your prayers and support!
