Evie Update as of yesterday
I haven't heard from my father today, but as of yesterday, here's the scoop:

The doctors still don't have a definitive diagnosis, but Evie was to have an MRV yesterday afternoon (this is a vascular scan) which was the last piece of the puzzle before having a diagnosis, apparently. Once there's a diagnosis, there can be a prognosis and plan of action.

Good news is, she had a seizure-free night Sunday. And as of yesterday she was starting to get a little bit of mobility back in her left side. These are both very good signs.

My father has no doubt that she will walk again. He's open to the possibility that she may have some permanent mobility impairment, though minor, but truthfully, it's too early to tell that. If she gets herself directly into physical therapy and sticks with it, I have no doubt she'll make a brilliant recovery. My father will ensure that even if she's grumbly about PT, she'll be there and liking it. ;)

Evie's mother is flying to Orlando (from Hawaii), so I'm not heading down there just yet. I expect to go down in a week or two, unless things change dramatically.

Thank you, everyone, for your thoughts, prayers, and kind words. It meant (means) a lot to me.

Current Mood: relieved relieved

sorry this is so late hon, but know that i'm keeping Evie and your dad in my thoughts. i'm sure the doctors are on the right track and will have a plan soon. my grandmother went through something similar a few years back (two brain anyorisms, one of which ruptured), and she's fine now with the minor exception of some loss of sight and smell. if doctors of the world can do that well for a woman in her 70's in oxford, ms, i have no doubt the doctors in florida can work wonders for Evie!
