Hello. My name is Abby. I'm eight years old and I was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome when I turned two. My parents work hard to help me make sense of the world around me and this blog is meant to help others understand my world and my journey with Rett Syndrome.

No Scoliosis!

Abby went to the orthopaedist today to have an x-ray of her spine.  Doesn't it look great? For now, that is one thing that we don't have to mess with.  What a relief!

We are going to have to continue strengthening and stretching to help prevent any curve from developing.  She does lean to one side, which could become a structural problem rather than a postural problem, but for now, there's no scoliosis.  Yay!  


  1. WOW!!! So awesome! reminds me we need to get this checked out too!

  2. Congrats! We need to get this taken care of preventatively as well. Thanks for sharing.

    Good for you guys working so hard to get this x-ray. Awesome!

  3. loving the glasses in this xray. :)
