    Back in town


    Hey Pinstack - thank you so much for all your prayers and good wishes. The prayers worked, as my daughter has come back home with us and will spend the summer re-habbing here in Spokane. She escaped paralysis, ( praise the Lord) and is walking again,albeit very gingerly, with a back brace on and both arms bundled up looking as big as Hellboy's.
    She had a titanium "cage" installed in her back, as they removed 2 discs, fragments of the L2 vertibra, and a rib. She has enough titanium installed into her, including both wrists, as we have lovingly nicknamed her "the bionic girl". She certainly will give metal detectors a run for it.
    Thanks again for all the well wishes. I truly believe she has recovered thusfar as a result of the prayers and good vibes. I am including a copy of the xray showing the cage- Chris

    Chris, Thanks for the update and as hard as I know it must be for her I am so happy to hear it isn't any worse. Has she thought about getting a titanium Curve? Sorry I couldn't help that. Honestly I am so happy to hear she is doing OK and the prognosis is good. Tell her our prayers are with her and to keep the faith. I am sure this is very hard for her.

    I know what its like to have all that. I have an entire set of screws and bolts in my back from a Scoliosis curvature fusion surgery (I was born with Spina Bifida, and severe Scoliosis that had to be surgically repaired at age 8. I'm now nearly 31). I don't set off metal detectors anymore.

    The best thing for her right now is to avoid excessive bending because that will loosen the hard work the doctors did to insert all that.

    I have managed to break every one of the screws in my back from numerous tip overs in my wheelchairs. As a result I don't sit up as straight as I used to but the doctors don't want to redo the surgery because I would lose a lot of function that I have now.

    Take it from a pro. She still has a long road ahead of her though. She will probably have to wear that brace for up to 12 weeks because of the damage to the spinal cord.

    Tell her good luck and if she would like (and its ok with both of you), I can talk to her on BBM so she doesn't feel alone through this. I missed the initial post about how she was injured but this still hits home to me every time I see a new spinal cord injured person.
