A little lucy update

 Around a month age we set out to Sheffield childrens hospital to get Lucy fitted for a new back brace and see the spinal surgeon and now finally i have a second to update

We had 2 appointment over 3 days so we stayed with my mum (thanks mum,I know we kept you busy)
Lucys xray showed that the curve had not progressed and in fact it actually looked a little better at the bottom end although the xray in my opionion was a little rushed and my little wiggly girl would not stand still,I didnt want her xrayed laying down as it doesnt show a clear picture so we got a just about to run off picture of Lucys spine

Mr cole her surgeon is happy with how things are and we are still not at a stage of operating although he says its likely that one day she will need surgery but as ever I stay the true optimist.

She is still too diddy for a spinecor brace yet and they are really hoping that another year will give her enough growth to be able to fit in to a spinecor brace.

Lucy was cast for her rigid brace and she did so well,no tears no crying,she was amazing and now she is the proud owner of a very pink very pretty butterfly brace

This will hopefully be her last rigid brace as we hope the next one will be the spinecor

Lucy has adapted very well to her brace and we are putting her in it a little more during the day now to get her back in to line again and then hopefully we can just brace her at night again

All in all a good apointment and we dont need to back till 6 months time.

Another little note on Lucy is she has started pre school and she got funding for a one to one support worker who is really looking after Lucys needs well.She is doing 2 morning a week  and although is not too happy about leaving me she is settling in nicely






Here is a picture of my little brave girl deciding what she wants for her birthday
