We're Home!

Wahoo, Ashlyn got discharged today!

The neurosurgeon wanted to make sure Ashlyn could keep some food down this morning before allowing us to go home, since Ashlyn threw up three times yesterday. The doc wanted her to eat some breakfast and lunch before discharging us. Ashlyn still didn't eat too much, but we were still able to go home! Yipee!

Ashlyn slept most of the four hour car ride home. She is a little fussy but her only method of pain management is Tylenol and Motrin. The doctor changed the dressing from Ashlyn's incision so we were able to take a good look at it. It looks really good!

So, now recovery at home starts. Ashlyn will continue physical therapy and will have her incision checked in about ten days. She has an appointment with the neurologist next week. She will also have a follow up MRI in about six weeks.

I will keep updating this blog during the recovery process and I will post some more pictures soon. Thanks so much for thoughts and prayers and continue to pray for Ashlyn as she heals.
