Side Effects of Chiari?

Ashlyn didn't have the best day today.  She has been falling more and more often, and today it seemed like she was on the floor more than she was standing.

She has also been choking more and more.  She doesn't choke so badly that she needs the heimlich, but it seems like she is back to choking on liquids and solids again.

The amount that Ashlyn has been falling and choking seems like the same amount since before her surgery.  I'm trying to stay optimistic (and maybe her coordination is due to her depth perception).  Obviously, the hope in the long run, is that the surgery will help prevent pain and headaches.  I am just glad that we go back to see the neurosurgeon in a few weeks.
