We had our follow up with the orthopedic surgeon yesterday to go over the MRI results (spine is normal). His curve has increased pretty dramatically in the last few months because he's just growing so fast. (from 31 degrees to 50) So next week we are going to set up a date for VEPTR surgery. (check out veptr.com i think which gives a lot of great info on it - they are also called titanium ribs) It will be early summer he thinks. We are scared but really excited. It sounds like it will do wonders for our little man and give him a chance at straightness. :) He'll have to be in the hospital for about a week, which is going to be pretty crazy. He's so wild right now I can't imagine keeping him couped up in the hospital for that long without him screaming and running through the halls. I am hoping it will help his speech too to get him straightened out some with this procedure. Sorry its a crazy ramble, I'm just thinking out loud I guess.
He's up to 22 lbs and they said like 32 inches (but i swear they never really take the time to measure him correctly unless you are at the endocrinology office). He was supposed to have another sleep study at the hospital to check for apnea but he was sick and snotty and so we rescheduled for May. Boy oh boy its shaping up to be a wild and fast spring.
