Can you believe he grew 2 inches?

Dr Chang just came out of the OR. Skyler did very well, he did loose a lot of blood, over 4 pints that we thought he would use. They just about replaced his entire blood supply! This is because he is on Depakene for seizures, and that has a blood thinning side effect.
He will be transfered to the ICU now for those doctors to watch over him for a couple of days. We will get to go see him in about 2 hours.

They had better results on the surgery than they expected, being able to straighten his curves almost all the way. They told us Skyler probably grew 2 inches, hard to imagine!

Thanks again everyone!

Chris and Kathy,
Your commitment to Skyler and to keeping the family informed is so commendable. I would be having a hard time just keeping myself together if one of my boys were in Skyler's place. Your are a courageous family and an inspiration to me.
Luv 2 U
