Little Miss Eden is going to have surgery again. We had an MRI last week to "recheck" her spinal cord (when she was a few months old, they thought it was "tethered" and then we were told it wasn't). Well, the repeat MRI said it definitely is tethered so we went to meet with Dr. Fuchs, the neurosurgeon today. He wanted to do surgery soon - and they had an opening on Tuesday so we took it. I know its soon and seems like "short notice" but they said the longer she waits, there is potential for the tethering to cause problems with her legs, bowel and bladder. Since we (me and Eden) are planning to go to TN for Thanksgiving, I wanted to allow her plenty of time to recover before trying to travel and Dr. Fuchs didn't want to wait until after Thanksgiving.
