Well There's No Need For You To Stay Here

This is a picture of my house.

This is a picture of Belli and me at my house.

Why are we home? In the words of Isabelle's surgeon this morning, "Well, there's really no need for you to stay here. See you next week." So, please do no come visit us in the hospital. We won't be there =-) We WILL welcome any and all visitors at home though. Let me know if you need directions.

Isabelle did get an x-ray done today and the surgeon said all of the hardware and the graft that he put in look good and in place. He did say that C2 in the posterior which he fused and C2 in the anterior look like they are separating a little bit so he is afraid he will end up having to do the anterior fusion as originally planned sooner rather than later. He did make some adjustments to her halo in hopes that this will help line up those bones a little better and put it off longer. Please continue to keep my Belli in your prayers that she has a quick and perfect recovery and any other fusions will not happen for a long long time.

Now, I am going to go enjoy being at home with my Belli.


  1. WOW!!! That is awesome! I know you are both SO excited to be home!!!!

  2. I AM TOTALLY EXCITED FOR YOU!!! Now she can rest peacefully at home!!!! GO ISABELLE!


  3. I know you must be soooo happy and relieved to be home. Isabelle, you are a champ! I am very proud of you!!!

  4. YEA!!! I'm so glad you ladies are at home!!!! I bet the beds never felt so good.
    Love, Amy :)

  5. As soon as I saw that first photo... my eyes teared! That second one... even more so! So happy you're both home.

  6. I'm so glad you guys are home! I'm also glad things went well for Belli. I'm praying that the fix he made to her halo keeps things aligned enough so ward off another fusion in the near future. Belli may be the fastest spinal fusion recovery I've seen in a while!
