Nina got to go to Mayo on Monday and we talked extensively about her having a Rhizotomy. Here is a link that explains with great detail what it is and what it does. I will share more about this on a later post, but for now, I wanted to share with you a before and after rhizotomy video I found.
Nina is a lot tighter than the child you will see, and I mean, a lot tighter. I put on all my weight on her feet so that I can get them to flex. Stretching her is really hard. Her leg...we have never seen it straight.
The video made me cry, just thinking that Nina might be able to get some relief from her spastic muscles does something to my heart. I easily forget how much pain she lives with from her spastic muscles, yet she very rarely complains.
