Summer went through scoliosis surgery when she was a freshman. She has a scar that is from the middle of her front to the middle of her back. It took almost 6 months to fully recover because they had to go through all her muscles in her stomach. Dr. Hales said that Skyler should have an easier recovery since he will have smaller incisions. He will miss about 6-8 weeks of school, so will be home schooled under the direction of the school.
He is taking it pretty well, considering all that he has gone through with his eye. He is such a trooper, I know the Lord gave him a lot of strength and endurance!
We figure he will probably be close to 6'11" when this all done. The doctor hopes that the surgery will take him to a 20/25 degree curve.
