Julie: I've already sent you a message on VATER so I guess this one is on scoliosis. I haven't a clue how to do this computer/web/internet stuff so I probably repeat myself by sending messages. At any rate, if you are interested in contacting me please do so at my e-mail address. We have one of the twins in a body cast now following spinal surgery - her degree had advanced to 47 upper and 62 lower. We are looking at January for surgery on the second twin. Same song, second verse.
