Sophia’s MRI Results

Last week we got the results of Sophia’s MRI. We met with her neurologist and he showed us pictures, explained some things and gave us a DVD with over a hundred pictures of her brain. She has had a stroke at sometime in her life — probably either in utero or during her open heart surgery that she had around a year old. It was a massive stroke and did quite a bit of damage. The doctor told us that the bottom line is this: she is basically missing 50% of her brain matter on the left side. Considering the diagnosis, it is amazing to me that she is doing as well as she is. So, at this point I guess I don’t know what to expect. Only time will tell. We are getting things set up for her to start OT, PT, and speech therapy as soon as possible.





Mostly Pictures

Not much going on this week but thought I would post some pictures. 
Claire had a birthday — she turned 10! Hard to believe she is that old as she is still so small. 

One of her gifts was a wagon and she and Bethany have had so much fun with it.



Megan came home from medical school for the weekend. She finally got to meet Bella and Sophia.


I spent some time this week trying to get a few good pictures of Bella and Sophia. It is so hard to get Bella to sit still for even a minute and most of the time Sophia won’t even look at me. But, here are a few that I ended up with that I liked.





Today our next door neighbor brought over a bunch of butterfly nets for the kids and they were so excited.


Bethany brought me some flowers (weeds) she found in the yard while playing.


Bella also brought me some flowers today — with the help of Jordan.
