5th Lengthening

Em had her appointment this past Monday. 

The purple tool is the magnet that they use to locate her magnet and mark it with the pen.  The white machine is what they use to lengthen.  It is very loud but painless.  

Dr. Luhmann went ahead and did a lengthening, but wanted us to watch the bottom part of her rod since the x-ray is showing it has started to migrate through the bone.  We were hopeful that it wouldn't continue, but her back looks different and we are concerned.  

If it has migrated all the way through, she will need a revision surgery as soon as possible.  

She is not in any pain right now.
