This is is my beautiful 12 year old cousin's pre- and post-op back x-rays. Isn't it bananas? I had never before seen anything like this. She was (most obviously) suffering from a severe case of scoliosis. She underwent surgery this week to have two metal rods placed. We are praying that despite the road to recovery from this being quite difficult that the long-term benefits will help to ease her back pain.
Modern medicine is simply amazing. Here's to wishing her a smooth and speedy recovery. We all love you, girly!
