Three years ago, we were sitting in the surgical waiting room at Children's National, waiting for Dr. Keating to tell us Victoria was out of surgery and that everything had gone smoothly. We had hoped and prayed for so many things that day. Three years later we are witnessing everyday just how successful brain surgery has been for Victoria. She still has issues that we are dealing with but overall our Chiari warrior is a success story. There is no cure for Chiari so we don't know if Victoria will need more surgery down the road. Right now she is focused on summer and learning how to ride horses competitively! In the many years that we have been dealing EDS and Chiari, we have all learned the importance of living in the moment. So, for today we are celebrating the successes of being three years on the other side of brain surgery.
