Avery Alexandra was born on October 14, 2009. She has had many health issues to battle in her short life and this blog is for our family and friends to stay updated on her progress. We also want to document this process for other families to view who may be going through the same experience. We thank you all for your continued love & support..♥♥

MRI Results & Opthomologist

We met with the Opthomologist today and FINALLY some good news....the 3 spots in her head are almost gone!!!! We are thrilled about this news. The spot behind her eye is still there and the same size and is initially believed to be a cyst. Currently, it is not harming her eye in any way. Once she has her Craniosynostosis surgery, they will look at the spot behind her eye and determine what to do with it.

Her surgery will likely be on April 20, 2010. We are currently waiting to ensure that all three surgeons (Craniofacial Plastic Surgeon, Neurosurgeon, and Ocular Surgeon) will all be available at that time.


  1. What a great picture of little Avery! I love it! She looks so happy, even if she does has an IV attached to her! I am so happy to hear all the great news you have received from the doctors! The perfect birthday present for you Sheila!

  2. She is beautiful Sheila! I'm so happy to hear about the good news. Continuing to pray for her upcoming surgery and your family. Happy Belated birthday and Happy New Year!

  3. We think and talk about Avery and you every day, Sheila. Your strength—and certainly Avery's—inspire us all. We're thrilled about the good news, and pray for many more.

    Much love,

  4. That's fabulous news. I'm sorry I'm just now reading about it but I've been keeping updated on your little one through Reyna. I'm so happy to read this good news. This will be a long road but I just know all will be well in the end. Thinking of you all.
