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..♥♥

She's doing great!

Avery has been recovering wonderfully. She has almost no swelling anymore, and her black eyes are almost gone as well. She is happy, laughing, smiling, playing and generally back to her old self. Except for sleeping. She wakes constantly during the night. We are hoping that is her just adjusting to 'hospital-time', where there is no difference between day & night.

We still have many more appointments to come, but now that we are past the surgery, I feel very relieved. As they say in the 'cranio-kids-world'.....WE ARE ON THE OTHER SIDE! :-)

I will continue to post as we journey through SVT, torticollis, and scoliosis. So check back for updates if you'd like to continue to watch her progresses. Our little fighter has a little more fighting to do!


  1. So glad to hear all is going in the right direction :)

  2. We are sure happy to hear that you are on "The Other Side" now. We will keep praying that she will continue to improve and be well. All of our Love, Uncle Larry & Aunt Ginny

  3. Hello! I am April's friend...you may not know me, but I follow your blog because my prayers are always with Avery and her big brother! She is a beauty. I have 5 kids and cannot imagine the strength you must have. I just wanted you to know that I am truly thankful she is recovering so beautifully and I will continue to pray for all of you! God Bless you all!
