My Scoliosis

I have multiple spinal curvatures (scoliosis), resulting in many casts and braces growing up, and a total spinal fusion when I was twelve. This has resulted in my being on oxygen since 2005--from a deformed chest cavity. Here's a few photos of my childhood.
(Who would guess that I'd grow up and BE a caregiver for someone else!)
my first cast, the day they put it on--14 mo. old in 1952

I'm the skinny one in another cast on the left--with grandpa and brother and sister.

I'm the skinny one on the right (still in a cast)--the oldest of my 2 siblings.

My cousin had scoliosis, had the back surgery at Shriner's Hospital. You have some difficult health issues to contend with, but look at how you lean on the Lord. You are a testament of your faith.
