Amelia went to gymnastics Friday afternoon (8/14). Around 5:30 (x-apple-data-detectors://1) I received a call from her coach that she had complained of a headache so they stopped her from participating , put her in the office  to rest but she got sick.  My husband went and got her and she got sick a little bit on the way home and said she felt a little better after doing so.  We put her up stairs in her room to rest.  About 15 minutes later I heard her screaming from her room and went up to check in her.  She told me she was so sick and had gotten sick again.  She began yelling she could not see me and slurring her words and went unresponsive.  I called the squad and they transported her to Children’s south.  The trauma team there could not get her to respond and intubated her and told us they were transporting her to the main campus.  Before leaving south they were able to do a CT scan which showed a brain bleed.  The neurosurgeon met us in the trauma room when we arrived at the main hospital and stated the CT scan showed a bleed in her cerebellum.  He wanted to take her to surgery to place a drain to elevate the pressure.  They took her into surgery  at midnight (x-apple-data-detectors://2) placed the drain and then took her for an MRI.  We found out Saturday morning (8/15) around 10 that the MRI results were unclear so they wanted a CT with contrast.   The doctors are thinking an AVM in the cerebellum but want to make sure.  The CT results did not provide the information the doctors hoped for and decided she needed an angiogram.  Dayton Childrens did not have the ability to perform this test and felt it was best to transfer care to Nationwide Childrens were an angiogram could be done.  Amelia was transferred by squad from Dayton Childrens to Nationwide Saturday evening (8/15)
