After our daughter was diagnosed with a severe case of idiopathic scoliosis we went searching for information on what to expect. We didn't find any. Well, not much at least. There were lots of medical mumbo-jumbo and a few personal experiences, but nothing that chronicled the journey and what parents and patients could actually expect. While Dad was suggesting that the patient, Princess Pants, start a journal Mom was creating this blog space. The goal: provide information based on real-world experiences so that the next person to come looking for the information we so desperately sought would have it at their fingertips.
