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..♥♥

We had Avery's pre-op appointment today with Dr. Cohen. There wasn't a lot of new information, as we have researched so much and learned so much already (to read details of the surgery, please see other post where I describe it). She will have stitches on her head instead of staples. These will dissolve. All of the screws and plates they will put in her head will also dissolve. There is a 15% chance she will need another surgery around 4 years old.
We are very anxious to get the surgery over with. It has been a LONG 5 months!!! Hopefully, once we get the surgery over, the heart problem corrects itself, and the scoliosis & torticollis improve we will finally be done ;-) or so we hope....
