Re: What to take to hospital - suggestions please!
We only needed one vest in hospital (but take more) because as soon as she was in her brace she was able to go home! In the hot weather they get very wet with sweat so we take off every night. If uncomfortable during the day we do a change then, but seeing as it hasn't been very hot this summer one a day has usually been fine. I expect boys would be more sweaty though!
Mum to Maddy aged 14. Maddy is a patient at Great Ormond Street Hospital and had a growth rod inserted in November 2007. In March 2011 the growth rod was removed because the curve became too strong. In May 2011 Maddy had anterior release, 2 weeks traction on a Stryker Frame and then spinal fusion.
