Change in Scenery
Ava is doing great! Incision appearance and swelling are surprisingly mild as she continues to heal. The removal of the cranial drain yesterday, was a big step!
The steroids Have her a bit cranky and needy; summoning Colleen to her bedside for hugs as needed.
Her toys have made their way to the crib and the silence of the room is now broken up by the familiar sounds of Doc McStuffins theme song.
There are talks of moving Ava from intensive care to another floor and the reality of a discharge in the near future. Ava will require weeks of special care and attention at home – but it will be HOME.
Let us not forget – end of day today we will celebrate her 5th day seizure free!

Becky Wells I am so glad she is doing so well. I hope she continues to amaze everyone with new accomplishments everyday. My husband had this done 60 some odd years ago. He is now 70. He has had a great quality of life. He was born with water on the brain and had seizures also. He had a few challenges like stunted growth, he's 5 feet tall, and problems with reading, other than that has been very active and successful. We have been married 47 years. With the new technology today I'm sure things are better. I wish Ava all the best. If you have any questions about long term prognosis, please feel free to ask us questions. My thoughts and prayers are with you al
Mary Glisson I am so glad that little Ava is bouncing back so well. I pray that God continues to heal her.
