Surgery date is set

She is such a ham for the camera!!

Rubea will have her surgery on Sept 15th!  We hope this surgery will loosen her ankles and relax her feet and help to straighten the curve in her spine a little.  Her curve is significant, so any relief she can get with this surgery would be awesome!  She has 4 places where she is *tethered* so it will be a little more extensive, probably about 5 hours. They expect her/our stay to be about 5 days.  After she recuperates from this surgery we can schedule her *big* surgery. They will go into her back and attach Titanium Ribs to help straighten her back.  We are trying to schedule both Rubea and Kaylea for the same day!!  
Thanks in advance for prayers for Rubea on the 15th!!

Love that smile! I'll be praying for Rubea. I know it is hard to let them go into surgery, also praying for better than expected results! Hugs, Sheryl
