SPML surgery - Before and After


When we met her in 2010.


When we met her.  (we were nervous because we weren't supposed to be taking pictures lol!)



M in 2012.



M in 2012.  Notice the toe walking, particularly on her left foot.  She just couldn't get her heels down.




The video we took in early 2013 to send to Dr. Nuzzo in New Jersey for the initial consult.  The man is truly a genius.  He took one look at her video and told me more about her cerebral palsy than anyone else ever had, BEFORE he met her in person.





After.
Tonight.  8 months post-op.
She's so much more stable.  She's no longer thrown so forward by the toe walking.

I love the progression all in one spot! What huge improvement!



We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life; but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny; and placed among us by God's very own hands. --Kristi Larson
