11 yo young lady we straightened up today
Her surgery took about 3.5 hours, with a 300 cc blood loss, no blood transfused. Her two "humps" are gone, and her X-Ray shows a very nice correction. When I showed mom and dad the X-Ray after surgery, mom gave me a big hug, and dad a nice handshake. A nice end to a great morning. Patient was able to go to a regular pediatric bed tonight with her parents in the room with her. No PICU needed!
In the afternoon, I did a revision scoliosis surgery on a 43 yo woman, who did very well. Whew, now I am tired and ready for bed. Two big surgeries for tomorrow including a cervical-thoracic kyphosis surgery.
