LOL – okay, not really – but she’s been approved for a really cool operation called the Titanium Rib. It’s meant to help kids who need more room in their chests (in my daughter’s case, she’s got a severe scoliosis that’s taking up some much needed lung room. Usually, when doctors look at her curve, they use workds like ‘impressive’ or ‘significant.’ I knew this doctor was my favorite when he looked at her x-ray and said, ‘that’s one wicked curve.’). Anyway – this operation was invented not so long ago by a doctor in Texas – and on Monday night (6/28 @ 8pm ET) it’ll be featured on a Learning Channel special on modern medical marvels.

Yep – that’s my baby – a modern medical marvel. Now, hopefully she can make it through through secruity at the airport without setting off all the alarms . . .
