Praise the Lord! The brace is working
The visit with Dr. Bridwell couldn’t have gone any better. This was just simply an x-ray, with the brace on, to ensure the padding/pressure is in the right spot and working.
Awesome news all the way around – he’s grown ¾” since February (I knew the boy had shot up) AND with the brace on, it’s working so well, his spine curvature goes from 32 degrees, down to 22 degrees.
To be clear, it is not correcting the spine. The brace will never “make the curvature lower PERMANENTLY” but reducing the curvature with the brace on is proof that it is doing what it’s supposed to.
Thank you for all the prayers! Close monitoring will continue every 4 months.
