Well, it took me 4 days to get a chance to type out a post about what is happening right now. As I went to change the font - the very last step - everyone's favorite blonde troublemaker leaned over to bellyflop onto the keyboard, deleting my highlighted text. Therefore, the long story of our scheduling chaos is gone.
To prevent this from happening again, here's the short version: Scheduling all of these doctors just plain sucks. Several doctors have rescheduled appointments lately, which makes it harder. Scarlett has a cold, so with all the extra appointments, she has had to miss several days of school. The end.
More importantly, Scarlett is scheduled for surgery next week, on Wednesday, 12/12/12. Hopefully, her neurosurgeon will be able to remove the entire mystery spot, and we will get some answers on what we are dealing with here. They expect her to be in the hospital for 3-5 days, depending on how her body handles it all.She will have a "stealth" MRI the day before to map out the surgical zone. He may or may not deal with some of the cranial bones that are not healing properly.
That's pretty much it. We have the house nearly Christmas-ized, since we will be gone for most of the next week. As stressful as it is to manage all of this, it's hard to be too upset when there is a smiley little girl around.
Whew, at least I got that typed before she dive-bombs me again!
