Going home

Our hero, Dr. Samdani, with his brave patient

Update 13- 

May 23- Going home!
We head home from Philadelphia today. Olivia had her post op follow up yesterday and is cleared to fly! Dr S is pleased with her progress and says she looks good (meaning her back and its healing process). He did notice a fracture in her lower back that she's had a long time, possibly since birth, that he sees in 6% of the population; nothing to be concerned about at this point.

Olivia will be back in Philly in July for another follow up appt. In the meantime walking is encouraged and resting and eating lots of protein is needed.

We thank you for the love and good thoughts as well as the financial support we've received and continue to receive. We have needed it all. She has a long road to recovery and today is our first step home to getting there.

Update 14- 

May 27 update-
We arrived home Friday evening from Olivia's surgery. It was good to be home!

Olivia is settling in to recover and finally able to rest in her own bed. She is off of her heavy painkillers 2 weeks out from surgery! She has a great attitude about recovery and doing well.

We head to Philadelphia again in July for her 6 week follow up appointment.

Again, we thank you for your love and prayerst! We have needed it all and appreciate it more than you know!
