Pediatric Neurologist

Ashlyn had an appointment today with the pediatric neurologist.  Back in February, when she was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation, she was referred to a neurologist and a neurosurgeon.  Today was the earliest date we could get in to see the neurologist, but to tell you the truth, after seeing the neurosurgeon and already having surgery, I wasn't quite sure what to expect at the appointment.

The doctor got some information on Ashlyn's background and diagnoses, and then did a full neurological exam.  The doctor also explained Ashlyn's original MRI.

The neurologist said that Ashlyn seems to be doing wonderfully!!  She passed the neurological exam and the doctor doesn't need to see her back unless we have future concerns!!

Wahoo, great news!!

great news! It was shocking to be after Sophie's emergency brain surgery that the neurosurgeon only saw her twice! They said the same thing, she will completely heal in 3 months on the inside and you don't have to come back unless you have concerns. These little girls are tough!
