Today, we received a CD of Abby's xrays from UMMC. I cried a bit looking at them. All I can say is, thank you Lord for healing my girl!!
Matt and I decided to publish these on the blogisphere to loudly proclaim that God has healed our daughter. You simply can't look at these and think otherwise! I plan to get the xrays from JHH that we had done for the ortho appointment so that we can do some before and after shots. Until then, these speak for themselves!
You can click on a picture to get a bigger image.
This was taken at 2 days old. I think it's a better look at the ribs. You can also see curve of her spine here. This was pre-trach.
This one is incredible to me, because it CLEARLY shows rib gaps on her lower right ribs (the left side of the image) right up at the sternum. Now, there are NO rib gaps anywhere near the sternum.
There are many, many more, including a bunch of her brain MRI, but these should give you a good indication of what Abby's ribs and spine looked like.
BUT NOT ANYMORE!!!!!!!!!
