2008 is shaping up...

Believe it or not these are 2 seperate incisions!!
Makenzie (11) had to have a lumbar laminectomy and tumor excision twice in 3 weeks! Her first surgery was on December 28th, 2007. Two weeks later the neurosurgeon called back to say that her follow up MRI showed some traces of tumor cells. They went back in a second time on January 21, 2008. The cells have all been benign - Praise the Lord! She has been a real trooper. We have been so impressed by her strength and stamina through this entire trying ordeal.
There are lots of little stories to be told in between the surgeries and we've gotten to know some great nurses at Children's Hospital. We are beyond grateful that she is on her way back to full health!
