Latest Journal Update


What a great day we had yesterday in Fargo!  The MRI was first, then we waited for her appointment with Dr. Eichler.  He came in the room with a smile on his face.  We were able to see a different side of Dr. E, it was a fun side.  He is a very serious man and an excellent dr.  It was so fun to visit about great news.  Here is what he said, Everything looks great, there is a small artifact on one of the MRI cuts of the brain, but this is nothing to be concerned with.  He wondered how her hand eye coordination was and she said good.  Then he wondered how school was going she said good.  Told him she was on the Deans List and he said joking, only the Deans List.  He was impressed.  He told her once again, how lucky she is to be here.  After going through everything, he told us he would not have to see her anymore.  We were very excited to here that.

We were ableto visit with many at the hospital.  They were excited to see all of us.  Many recognized Scott and I before they recognized Sara.  They seen so much of us and Sara looks much different now, and many only seen her with all the tubes and wires and machines.  It was so fun to see them all.

We were able to sit with Robb, before, during and after Sara's appointments.  Steph's surgery went well, 4 hours long.  They fused higher up in her back again and took out screws and put in new ones.  We were able to see her for about a half hour before we had to head home. 

We will be getting a book made of Sara's site, from the Caring Bridge.  It will be a nice momento for her to have the rest of her life.  This will be our last entry, and thank you so much for your support and concerns over the last year .  It has been a real journey.

Love from the Gullickson's
