Good morning, well almost good afternoon here in sunny, HOT, southeast Louisiana. I hope everyone is having an excellent Friday and has lots of plans for the weekend to come.
Wednesday, my grand daughter, Kristie, had an appointment w/ her neurosurgeon in New Orleans. It was the get the results from recent MRI to see if the spinal fluid is backing up into her neck. After all the prayers we had with us, I was sure hoping the results of the MRI was going to be more welcomed results than they were.
Unfortunately, the MRI results were not what we were expecting. Her chiari malformation has severely blocked her fluid flow, so surgery is our only option. Aubrie’s symptom of choking on nothing, has also only gotten worse, so Dr said to monitor her 24/7 to make sure she doesn’t choke. He was really an advocate for the surgery, he feels one of these times she will choke, and we, as her parents and grandparents, won’t be able to help her pull out of it.
So her surgery has been scheduled for 8/22, we have to be at the Oschner’s Hospital in New Orleans for 5 AM, surgery is set for 7.
I am babysitting and cooking lunch, I will post more in a few, I am also reading/liking/commenting on the blogs I follow.
