Megan Oseland Megan's Journey

First post: Feb 18, 2018 Latest post: Feb 5, 2019
On February 15th 2018, our beautiful 13yr old daughter Megan had a stroke. She had a typical day and was at her dance class when her Mom received a frantic phone call. It was Megan yelling that she couldn't move her neck and to come get her. After some dialogue, 911 was called and Stacy (mom) went to the dance studio. When she arrived, Megan was unresponsive and in the hands of an EMT. She was placed in an ambulance and taken to a hospital. She had a team of eleven busy health professionals working on her as they weren't sure what caused her to become unresponsive. After a variety of tests, it was determined that she had a stroke. This was caused by a  arteriovenous malformation (AVM) in her brain that had started to bleed. To simplify what an AVM is, it's an abnormal connection of blood vessels. This is a rare occurrence in the pediatric realm but they carry a higher rate of rupture than in adults.
