It's safe to say that Savanna is pretty obsessed with My Little Pony now. It has taken over her life quite a bit. She reads about the Ponies, watches their show, draws and colors them, sleeps with them, wears socks with Ponies, and now has a new poster above her bed! It's nuts. She swears she still loves Paw Patrol too, but I'm not so sure... None of the pups have been kicked out of her bed yet, but I think it's only a matter of time. :-) More on the Ponies later...
It's been a busy May and first part of June! First, I'll start with some of Savanna's latest adventures, then we'll get into her latest Shriner's visit.
Pretty Butterfly Ballet Recital
Hanging with her "bro"
Kindergarten Graduation. Look who's a rising first-grader now!
Birthday Party for the Big 6-Year-Old
Not to worry, the kids still like Paw Patrol a bit too. Here they are tailgating before Paw Patrol Live. (It was a great show!!)
Visit to Shriner's:
We went back to Shriner's at the end of May to pick up Savanna's 4th new brace. However, this one does the job we need it to do! Of course, it needed to be decorated. What else would it be decorated with?? More Ponies! While wearing a Pony hoodie and watching My Little Pony on the iPad, of course.

Beautiful in-brace x-ray!
Twilight Sparkle's x-ray looks pretty good too!
We had a little bit of a learning curve the first day or so with this brace, but that's it. Savanna can get it off by herself in the morning if needed, so that is a relief. She cannot walk with it on though, because it digs into her side a bit and is painful when she stands. We learned that the hard way. Of course, she is doing really well with it, and she wears it all night, every night, without complaint. What a trooper!
Her next check up will not be until 6 months from her last visit, so around the end of November. Until then, please have a great summer and fall, and keep sending Savanna your love for continued success with her spine straightening! I will do a new post after her next check up. Thanks for reading!
