Things have changed for the better post surgery but they have not been without their challenges. A week out of the surgery Olive was having difficulty remembering her multiplication facts and simple academic things that were not an issue before.
We are working with therapists and tutors to get her the help she needs to return to school and keep up.
She will undergo further testing for viseo-spatial skills, general OT skills, word processing. language processing as well as a full neuropsychological evaluation.
The road to recovery after your brain flow is altered is at least 3 months. She seems to get better everyday and this is very encouraging. Just living without the headaches seems like gift enough at this point. She had enjoyed doing well academically and we hope to restore that for her and keep building up her confidence.
