Down to One

Scarlett just had the NJ (nasal-jejunum) tube removed!  This leaves her with just one IV left.  Hooray!  MRI tomorrow, and if it is clear, we can go home tomorrow afternoon!  If not, she'll need a shunt on Tuesday.  Good progress!

Congratulations! If you need anything when you get home, just ask. The whole school community is asking what they can do to help. Meals? Washing? Grocery shopping? Company? We're all here for you guys.

So happy for you guys and thankful for the progress she has made!! The Lord has really kept His hand on her, as so many prayers have gone up for her. Go Scarlett!!
And thanks for the post about damnyouautocorrect. I hadn't heard of that sight and I laughed and laughed. Well needed!!!

Jill Angel said...

What a strong little girl! You guys are blessed to have her. You guys are doing a great job!

Greatest news!!! I'm happy for you all. GO Scarlett GO!!!! xoxo

Great news. At hospitals they fix and monitor - home is for healing. From one brain surgery parent to another, you might be tempted to never leave her alone again. Research shows that she has a better chance of a normal development if you treat her like any other child her age with appropriate infection control measures. Invest in a good video baby monitor so you can put her down for a nap without freaking out everytime she moves.

Wonderful news!
By my count the score is:
