Hi everyone,

Just logged on to say we are off to GOSH on 18th September for Maddy's surgery on 19th. She is having a growth rod fitted - eek! It's been on the horizon for so long I can hardly believe it's here.

I will keep a diary and let you know how it goes. Thanks for your support, I felt really alone without you guys.

That's great news that you have a date. Hope she stays well between now and then (seems to be my problem at the moment) and everything goes smoothly. Will be thinking of you and wishing you the best.

Let us know if you need visitors!

I know it's not quite the same, but we're off on 24th for Chloe's fusion on 25th so I guess we'll be going in as you're going home (ish).

Good luck anyway - see you on the other side.

Hi, i just wanted to wish you luck with Maddies growth rod surgery tomorrow. My daughter is under Mr Nordeen/Tucker at GOSH and had spinal growth rods about a year ago now. She had her 1st lenghtening in May and is due to have the second one done November/December. She is doing really well now. How old is Maddie? Megan was 3 1/2 when she had this surgery done. Thinkihng of you, and keep us updated.
Love Beth

Hi Rachie

Best of luck for tomorrow. I hope you're not feeling too nervous about it all. We are at Stanmore tomorrow so will be thinking of you. I'll PM you my mobile no so that if you don't get a chance to update the site, we can do it for you. We'd all love to know how she is.

Thinking of you
