Jordan had her visit with the scoliosis specialist today.
She is going to need surgery, and we go on Jan 8th for the pre-surgical appt. Her surgery will be in Jan, and the surgeon will set the definite surgery day when we go on the 8th. He will also take new X-rays to get a better view to see if he is going to do the surgery through her back, or abdomen.
She has the S curve, and the most severe curve located in the lumbar region is at 52 degrees. The thoracic curve is around 30 degrees. He is hoping if we can get the lower curve corrected, then perhaps the upper curve will "behave" and not get worse. The surgery is...he will have to break her lower back to straighten her spine, and then bone graft/fuse a few of her vertebrae together with a titanium rod to brace that portion of her back.
We still believe God is able to heal Jordan completely. Whether it be by a miraculous healing, or through surgery, God has a purpose and a reason...everything is sifted through His almighty hands.
So we continue to have faith, and who knows, perhaps when they take the X-ray's on the 8th before her surgery, her spine will be straight! =)
