Clearance – surgery a success

Olive was cleared this am via MRI. Her brain is not longer in her spinal column she has “robust” spinal fluid now going to all parts of her spine. She can swing and dance and fall like normal children can without fear of paralysis. She can laugh without losing her hands and she can hang upside down. She has made noteable gains in terms of developmental issues and no longer suffers from debilitating headaches.

Olive will need lots of play to rebuild her balance and strengthen her muscles again after more than a year of no activity.

We are so thankful for all the prayer and support and love. We are also thankful for Seattle Children’s Hospital and Dr. Ellenbogen.

Here is to hoping the gains continue and remain.
