52 Week Photo Challenge Week 41

This week isn't a fun or cute memory.  J was diagnosed with scoliosis.  First suspected by the school nurse, then pediatrician confirmed it, and an ortho explained it and our plan to monitor it.  For now, her degree (22) is low enough to monitor by xray every 5 months to make sure if it increases, we can change our treatment as necessary.

We truly aren't fearful or worried about this, there are MUCH worse things we could be facing right now instead.  Just a reminder of how blessed we are for healthy children!


  1. I was diagnosed with the same at her age. Spent the next years at home with mom yelling at me to hold my shoulders up! :-) I think it has a lot to do with her growing so tall so fast. Will be praying that it is no big deal and that she continues growing tall and beautiful!

  2. So glad that is was not more serious than it is!! I'm glad they will be keeping a close eye on it!!
