Miriam was released from the hospital after two nights and has been resting comfortably at home since yesterday afternoon. We got the call from her surgeon today to let us know that the cultures from her surgical site didn’t grow anything, so she did not have an infection and no further intervention is needed. We will still check in with Dr. Williams over the coming years to monitor her curve, as fusion is still definitely a possibility. For now, however, she gets to live hardware-free for the first time in nearly nine years! And once her incisions heal, she’ll be able to stretch and rotate her back with a full range of motion for the first time ever!
