Scarlett is three months old today. On October 16, we welcomed our beautiful girl to the world. I asked the nurses to change the ID label on Scarlett's bed to show "3 Months" instead of "2 Months 14 days" from her admission. She is growing and changing every day, despite the trauma of surgery and hospitalization.
Tomorrow marks one full month since Scarlett's tumor was identified. One month since our baby was considered healthy and normal. What a month it has been. She was home for 6 days in the last month; 24 in the hospital. 5 MRIs, 2 CT scans, 5 EEGs, 3 surgeries.
But we have had great progress already this morning. She was extubated (the breathing tube removed) a few minutes ago. She had one annoying IV removed from her kicky foot. We got a report that she has had no seizures in the last 24 hours, so the EEG contraption will be removed. I have heard rumors of catheters, arterial lines and CSF drains getting removed, but I am not going to count on it until I see it happen.
Here's to another month!
