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.

First Orthopedist Visit

Abby went to her first orthopedist appointment yesterday. Our pediatrician told us a few weeks ago that he thought her spine was curving a bit to the right. Scoliosis is very common with Rett Syndrome, so we had an x-ray done to check it out. After looking at the x-ray, the ortho. told us that her spine is straight, no curve at all. We won't have to go back unless there is a concern later. Yay! Praise God for some very good news!!!


  1. YES!!!!!!! Love that! We had a visual "straight spine" diagnosis but still havent heard on the xray! i hope we have the same results. one less thing to worry about! Im so happy for you!

  2. Oh my gosh... so happy to hear the news. Fantastic... yes thank God! Luv yall
