We thought 2007 was a tough year. Mylee's first year a life was challenging as we struggled with illness after illness. The latter part of the year, we were successful with staying out of the hospital - however, Mylee was diagnosed with Chiari type I Malformation. Dave and I were able to schedule appointments with Neurosurgeons in both Arizona and Colorado.
January, 2008 -
Mylee was hopsitalized with what was believed to be another aspiration pnuemonia. A modified barioum swallow test on January 4th, confirmed Mylee was aspirating solids. On Monday, January 7th, we were admitted to St. Joseph's hospital in Arizona. Mylee underwent a Nissen Fundoplication and a G tube placed on January 14th. Mylee also underwent a decompression of her brain on January 17th.
We are home and looking forward to all of her achievements in 2008. Stay tuned as I will hopefully provide everything we hope to overcome and accomplishments she makes throughout this year.
Thank you to everyone for all the thoughts and prayers! We love you all!!
