Good News...Finally!

Postby shannon » Sun Mar 14, 2010 8:58 pm

My son Owen (6) had decompression surgery on Wednesday and was walking and able to go home from the hospital by Friday!! He's recovering soooo quickly and is on no pain meds at this point! For once he has experienced the "best case scenario". There is a light at the end of the tunnel. Now we just wait for his syrinxes to shrivel away. I try to visualize that and it helps me :) We still have to have him fitted for his back brace to stop the progressing scoliosis but this gives us new hope. Thanks to everyone on this site who has been so helpful and honest with advice and well wishes. They really helped us through the diagnosis and surgery process.
