Almost a year!

What a remarkable year it has been. One week from today, Hollis will be 1 year post-hemispherectomy. She has only had 8 seizures (that we have seen) since that time! That was as many as she would have in a day, with meds, a vagus nerve stimulator and other therapies. We have been so fortunate that this surgery has been such a success.

After July 11, 2009, I have decided that I will not update the blog any longer, because it was meant to follow my little girl's journey through the surgery and recovery process. At a full year, the neurologists say that the healing process is complete, and so my journey of documenting all of the anticipation, fear, relief and joy will be complete as well. Thank you for reading it, and I hope that it helps others who are going through similar challenging experiences.

Thank you SO much for sharing Hollis' and your family's journey this year! I have enjoyed reading your updates...and just knowing there are other people out there who understand life with seizures. And the crazy desperate things parents do to help their children!

Brave Hollis! A whole year! Wow...and you look just beautiful!
