I recently had an appointment with Dr. Stanley, my orthopedic doctor. He took x-rays (as you can see above) of my spine again. I think it's so cool that they can see my bones this way! Here's what they found... The good news is that the curvature in the cervical region of my spine has stayed the same. The not so good news is that the curvature in the thoracic region of my spine has gotten a bit worse. But the silver lining is that the thoracic region is a better area to operate on. So the prognosis is that if it continues to worsen I will have surgery to fuse the vertibrae once I am about a year to a year and a half old. So we'll be going back for more x-rays in Oct. to check the status.
