Day 31 In Boston - Out Of Surgery - Painful

India is out of surgery and the ICU.  The first few hours were very painful for her; she is ok now. 

They removed the "pins" from her knees, x-rayed her spine and did bunch of blood tests.

The doctor is worried about the curvature of India's' spine and its impact on her heart, hips and lungs. The scoliosis is only 3 points away from being dangerous and requiring surgical intervention.  She will have to wear her torso brace 24/7 if possible to fend off a major surgery and more pain.
