     I just realized I never updated Hailey's surgery.  On Monday the 11th Hailey had her spinal fusion and pernament rods put in place.  She was fused from T-2 to L-5 and the rods were anchored in her pelvic bones because her curve started there.  Hailey will never be able to bend forward or twist at the waist.  She will be learning a new way of  doing everything now.  Hailey went from an 87 degree curve, actually she had other curves too, to perfectly straight. She is also about 4 inches taller than when she went into surgery.   Her surgeon, Dr. Woo, is a miracle man!
       Sometime this summer Hailey will be having surgery on her hips/legs.  My sweet girl isn't looking forward to that, but in the end she will be able to stand, walk, and RUN ( has never done that) like every other teen and she is looking forward to that day.
