Nearly 5 years ago, we sat together in a small clinic room
with a doctor and nurse practitioner.  We
had left Scarlett, just a few days out of surgery, in the hospital with my
sister nervously watching her while we traveled down the Bay to see the doctors

Surgery tomorrow? Nope.
Scarlett has successfully avoided this surgery 5 times now.  Once in June, when she suddenly started having hundreds of seizures a day, and then abruptly stopped (and hasn't had a single one since). Twice in December, first for an emergency and then for a c...

The Surgery that Wasn't (But Will Be)
You probably think we fell off the face of the earth. We didn't. I'm sorry!  I was so burned out after the surgery planning...and then the day came. It was scheduled for a Tuesday.  We had worked really hard to plan out all the details - all of Scarlett's c...

One Two Three FOUR
Last week, Scarlett turned FOUR! Can you believe it?  If you're still reading my sporadic updates, you've probably been around a while, and, like me, are completely floored that we are already at 4 years old.   This was the first time we felt like she would...

Summer
It's been a long time since I've had a chance to write.  I've gotten several messages asking how she is doing.  Thankfully, we've been busy in all the good ways.  I went through the pictures from the last few month to see what has not made its way here...we...

March and April Recap
Here's what Scarlett has been up to lately... She had an EEG to measure seizure activity.  Her seizures were confirmed, and she started a new medication to help manage them.  The seizures are still present, so the medication will need some tweaking, but non...

Spring Break Update
It's the end of our Spring Break, heading into the home-stretch of the school year and some crazy weeks around the house, so I though I would try to sneak in an update. First, Scarlett is doing amazingly.  She is EVERYWHERE - running, climbing on everything...

Scratch that...Next week
Don't have time for much, but the bottom line is that surgery is now next Friday.  Apparently what we heard as "February 6" was actually "February 13"...not sure how that happens.  I think we would have connected that we scheduled a surgery on Friday the 13...

Surgery #15
For the last 3 years, we have been working on fixing Scarlett's skull.  It's finally time for the last step! School was canceled today due to stormy weather (the first time I have ever heard of that around here).  I got to go with Chris and Scarlett to both...

Seizures
We are home after a 5 day hospital stay.  Yuck. Let me out!! Baby jail Scarlett has been having visible seizures for a few months.  For the last few years, she has had none (that we knew about); it was one of the few "expected" brain tumor effects that we w...

6 Months Post-Chemo
Scarlett had an MRI last week.  It was clear!  We didn't have too many concerns, but that doesn't mean much.  She's doing great, so we will wait another three months before we scan again. We had to wait quite a while for her turn in the MRI, so daddy made s...
