On Wednesday the 16th we met with ENT surgeon Dr. Alice Lin, who said the patch looks great, is "completely healed". Next we met with neurosurgery PA David who saved the titanium plate for Madison, pictured.
On Wednesday December 23rd Madison will have a video swallow study. Given she hasn't eaten since October food is smelling especially good. Next steps TBD, likely therapy to strengthen everything effected.
Over the course of treatments, Madison's hairdo has transitioned from blond and straight in 2013, to bald as a cucumber. Then short and sassy in 2014, back to bald and beautiful after more chemo.
It's been a year since her last chemo treatment and she is rocking it, waaaaaay curly and wicked cute! Yes... that's a "new normal" ... naturally curly.
