It has been a long two days since coming home. Though Bai has slept well over night, her days have been filled with tears, screaming and discomfort. Today was a little better, but not by a whole lot.

Surgery went well today. The dural tear, that was allowing for the spinal fluid leak, was at the top of her spin where the goo blob use to be. The hooks that were removed with her rods 2 weeks ago were the culprit. The doctor had to remove a small portion of her vertebra bone… Read More
