Charlie’s Story NEW!
Little Charlie was born full term via normal delivery on July 11th 2015. He is our fourth child and we were all besotted with him.
Soon after Charlie was born I noticed his back was a ‘funny shape’, but I was afraid to say to anyone in case my fears came true. I was so anxious inside.
When Charlie was just 3 months old my husband was feeding him, and while burping him he noticed his back just wasn’t right. He told me his concerns and it was at that moment my fears became reality.
We saw the pediatrician at our local hospital who agreed that Charlie’s back looked ‘off’, and she arranged an X-ray for him. After the X-ray I was brought into the pediatricians office. I could immediately see on her screen that there was a curve in Charlie’s spine. I was absolutely devastated.
