Brace comes off
I finally got the green light to take off my awful brace. I had to wear a Minerva Brace for 7 long months. Originally I was supposed to be kept in a Halo. Unfortunetly, I was considered a high risk for infection due to my VP shunt (the Halo pin and VP shunt were sitting rather close together) So I was placed into the Minerva. I kept it on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! Sleeping in it was like sleeping on a hard, concrete floor. Not very comfortable!
