Scoliosis Spine

Tue, 07/30/2013 - 21:23 -- Eryca.Z

I once had a twisted spine,

But my curved back is now aligned.

With bolted screws and titanium rods,

I was lucky enough to beat the odds.

I went through not 1, but 2 surgeries.

At the best hospital in the world Children's Mercy.

I couldn't have imagined what I would have done,

If I didn't go to your hospital which I say is #1.

For what they do for kids like me,

Who have a curve of 44 degrees.

Thank you,

because my back wouldn't even have 1 screw.

They told me your a survivor Ms. Zaiser.

I said I wouldn't have been if it wasn't for people like you doing things that most people wouldn't even do out of the blue.

Words can't describe how lucky am I

Even though the pain was so bad I had tears in my eyes as I cried.

Asking why can't I just say goodbye and die!


But on June 9th, 2013 is when my recovery was finally over,

I knew I would never again have uneven shoulders.
