14 yo young lady w 44 degree thoracolumbar adolescent idiopathic scoliosis fixed this morning

I am back after a nice one week break, including a wonderful family reunion.
This morning I was "back in the saddle" and stopped in to see Karly and her family. Karly is obviously well loved: she had over a dozen people here, who all squeezed into her Preop room forming a circle of prayer led by her youth pastor. What a great group!

Her surgery this am went great. We go a great correction w T10-L3 instrumentation.
Surgical time: 2 hr 50 min.
Complications: none.
Postop location: large private ortho room w bed for mom or dad. ( not enough for everyone I saw this morning!!!)

It is good to be back. Hope you are all doing well.
