scoliosis

please pray for my daughter. She was at her annual checkup and the doctor detected a 7 degree rotation with a scoliometer. She will be seeing a specialist in a month…there was no earlier appointment. Please pray that it was a false positive reading.:frowning:
Thank you

praying that her body rights itself, with Jesus’ help.

Prayers for intention said.
Mary

Be thankful that it was detected early! There’s a silver lining to every situation. Mine wasn’t dubbed serious enough for concern until my doctor discovered I had a 63 degree curve in my spine. She will be okay, it was caught early and can now be helped.

I pray for your daughter! :gopray:

Pater noster qui es in caelis:
sanctificetur Nomen Tuum;
adveniat Regnum Tuum;
fiat voluntas Tua,
sicut in caelo, et in terra.
Panem nostrum cotidianum da nobis hodie;
et dimitte nobis debita nostra,
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris;
et ne nos inducas in tentationem;
sed libera nos a Malo. Amen

Memorare (Prayer to Our Lady)
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen

As He did for my niece.

Amen

I don’t know if it is early. The 7 degree is the scoliometer screening tool, I will not have a Cobb angle until she sees a specialist next month. Do you know if there is a correlation? Do you remember your scoliometer reading when it the 63 degree curve was discovered? If it is too personal, you don’t have to answer, I just wish we could get someone to see her sooner, I have so many questions.

thank you all. Please keep her in your prayers.

Nothing is too personal, I’m happy to help you! I was 12 when I found out I needed the surgery for it. I found out the actual severity of my curve from an x-ray they took, the one who gave me my original reading was the school nurse, and her technology wasn’t exactly modern :wink: Try looking at her back from different angles and see if you notice the curve. When I found out I needed surgery, I was really confused because I didn’t think it was that bad. I took a lot of pictures of my back and studied them. I noticed that my spine was noticeably curved and the left side of my ribcage stuck out more than the other side. If neither of these things are terribly noticeable, it’s most likely not that bad. But if they are, please know that there is nothing in your power that you can do. Even after I knew I needed surgery, my curve got a few degrees worse. You are both in my prayers, everything will be okay!

thank you so much maimay234

Feel free to message me if you have any other questions! God bless :slight_smile:

Holy Saint Anthony, gentle and powerful in your help, your love for God and charity for His creatures made you worthy, when on earth, to possess miraculous powers. Miracles waited on your word, which you were always ready to request for those in trouble or anxiety. Encouraged by this thought, I implore you to obtain for* fa1en’s daughter, an improvement in her scoliosis; or, if it is in accordance with the Divine Will, a return to total health*. The answer to my prayer may require a miracle. Even so, you are the Saint of Miracles. Gentle and loving Saint Anthony, whose heart is ever full of human sympathy, take my petition to the Infant Savior for whom you have such a great love, and the gratitude of my heart will ever be yours. Amen.

Amen

O God, our heavenly Father, whose glory fills the whole
creation, and whose presence we find wherever we go: Preserve
those who travel; surround them with your loving care; protect them from every danger;
and bring them in safety to their journey’s end; through
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Come and embrace me Lord
Hold me secure
Hold me strong
Hold me forever
In Your everlasting arms
Amen

Our Father, Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Your Name
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the Kingdom
and the Power
and the Glory for ever and ever.
Amen.

Ave Maria, gratia plena,

et benedictus fructus ventris tui Iesus.
Sancta Maria mater Dei,
ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae.
Amen

I am losing hope that it is a false positive. I see the deformity. Please pray for her. A miracle maybe… or that it is mild. please?
