Allison Update - Surgery Day - Mid Surgery

They just updated us that Allison is in phase 3 of her surgery.  All screws have been placed in her spine on both sides T2-T11, they are now removing bone between the vertebrae to allow them to adjust the curvature of the spine.  Next they will start placing the rods and straightening the spine and then they will pack the spine with bone fragments and bone marrow to start the fusing process.  They said she could be out of surgery as early as 2pm.  

Thanks again everyone for all the prayers and emails of support!!

I will continue to send updates.
