I have to call next week to schedule an appt for an MRI and brace fitting. They will do it together since she needs to be under sedation for it. The brace is custom fitted to her body, I would assume by the time it's finished she'll be in it in around 3 weeks. The reason for the MRI is just to make sure everything looks OK. The doc's mentioned that sometimes with scoliosis a cyst can form, but he didn't seem too concerned that this was her case (since she doesn't show any signs or anything at all) but since she has to be under sedation for the fitting, it seems better to be safe than sorry.
So that is the news around here...I've been bumming, but am getting better! Ari knows about her brace, we told her, and how often she'd have to wear it, but are trying to not make it a big deal to her, so unless she brings it up we're kind of just going along like normal. My tears have been attributed to my "hurt knee" wink wink. She usually doesn't miss a beat, but I really don't think she knows the real reason I'm upset so that's good!!
