sorry i have'nt updated sooner. Josie's surgery has been rescheduled to June 19. It was scheduled for May 22, but her doc was concerned that he'd be leaving town the next day and wouldn't be available if needed. if it was a straight forward expansion surgery it wouldn't be as concerning. but this is a 'revision' surgery. they will be replacing one rod with a longer one (and a newer generation/design too) and then replacing the rod they took out two years ago.
we are a little discouraged that it will be cutting into her summer, but it's best. her light therapy has been going great! her psoriasis is almost knocked out. but June the doc hopes it'll be completely wiped out.
