We think we got some good news today. Daddy went to pick up a copy of the CT scan I had done on Tuesday to take with us to our appointment with Dr. Schendel next week. Along with the electronic images there was a written report. It said:
Findings: Mandibular distractors have been placed bilaterally in the interim. There is no evidence of hardware failure or loosening. There are no new acute fractures.
We won't know for sure until Dr. Schendel takes a look at the CT but my parents are a little more hopeful that maybe nothing was damaged in my fall and they may be able to avoid another surgery!
You can see in the photo above a picture of my Radio Flyer ride-on horse. I am a little hesitant with the horse - about all I want to do right now is chew on his mane. Maybe if my parents get me some boots and a hat......
