Post Op Check-Up

Ashlyn had a follow up appointment with her family doctor last week.  (The neurosurgeon arranged this so we didn't have to travel 4 hours back to Duke Children's Hospital).

Ashlyn hasn't seen this doctor since January, and this was the doctor that first suggested we get an MRI.  (Thank you doctor!)  The doctor was very encouraged to see the progress that Ashlyn has made since January!  He was interested in our journey since we last saw him, as he has read all the reports.  He was also interested in the Chiari Malformation because this is his first case.  I guess he will always remember Ashlyn now. :)

Ashlyn had another great check-up, her incision looks good, and she has recovered quickly.  Awesome!

Looks like we won't have too many more doctor's appointments until the end of June when Ashlyn goes back to Duke for follow up with the neurosurgeon and another MRI.
