The Doc Called

And here are the notes I took while on the phone:
Dr Freeze- fairly significant abnormality in spine- causing stooling abnormality and urinary- tethered cord- spinal cord attached to bottom of rotibral (don't know right spelling here) column- stretched more and more as patient grows taller. Perminate neuro damage and nerves stretched. Nerves too stretched to signal rectum to work right
Pooched out area of spinal fluid in front of rectum- big sac of fluid is pushing in on rectum.
Needs to see a neurosurgeon- snipped tether- fluid sac needs to be fixed so not to cause major problems. – request for Doc Raffle (pediatric neurology)- appointment for spring break?
