Just a quick update to let you know that Sumana's surgery went FANTASTIC!! She was in surgery about 3 1/2 hours and was able to recuperate in the 'quiet room' in the pediatric ambulatory unit. Dr. Sanders was able to use her same incision from the first surgery, so it is really long and goes all around her shoulder blade. However, no other incision was made and nothing new. Woo-hooo!! The rod nearest her spine was expanded 2 cm and a super long NEW rod was put in the lower half of the far rod. (So, lots of expansions should be able to happen there!!)
I can't wait to share pictures from Sumana's social pre-op time. It seemed like she knew everyone and everyone knew her. It was such a riot!!
We're home and it only took us 12 1/2 hours door to door. Thank you so much for your prayers. Dr. Sanders was VERY pleased with the procedure and happy to let us come home tonight!! Yea!!!
