It has been a while since I last updated! We had a great weekend at home and enjoying being together! After 2 crazy busy weeks in the hospital and traveling, we needed some time to be home and do nothing! Of course, doing nothing still meant that on Sunday Nina got to have a birthday celebration because she is now 5 years old. She is very excited to be as old as her big sister Ellie (post and pictures to come).
The last two days we have been driving to Mayo every day since we have not been able to get a room at the Ronald McDonald house. They are full! Yesterday we were 12 on the list and we really hope we are getting closer to being the next named called on the list.
As far as the rhizotomy goes, Nina is really doing fantastic! The difference in only 2 weeks is absolutely incredible.
A few people have asked where the incision is done for a rhizotomy. For Nina, it was higher than we thought it would be. For some reason, Andy and I always thought that it would be close to her waist, you know, since she is primarily affected from her waist down. However, the incision was done mid-back.
