Back pains

For about a month now Kyra has complained from time to time about her back being sore.  We brought this to the attention of her doctor and an x-ray was taken of her back.  We were told that Kyra has a compression fracture of her spine probably as a result of the bones in her back getting soft from the steroids.  She was seen by an orthopedic surgeon and told that in time it will probably get better.  For now we will monitor her posture for any signs that her back is curving too far forward.
