A Specialist Especially for Dorito
The spine specialist at Children's Mercy shares his department with a neurologist and a sports medicine doctor, so we were encouraged after meeting with their team this afternoon. They said Dorito's neck and spine are not the worst they've seen, nor is he done with hockey for the rest of his life. They found more abnormalities/injuries in his neck than previously detected, and they want to do more tests. They want to change his Physical Therapy routine a bit, too. But this is an encouraging path now, with progress as the goal.
