Mackenzie update:: Going Home:: hit 4 lbs

Mackenzie will be graduating from the NICU tomorrow!!! As long as none of the dr.'s change their minds and she does good the last night!! Starting her treatment back up, has to be seen once a week for cell count check, lots and lots of appts...... The unfortunate news we found out from her MRI is that there is sooo much fluids and they are in place of brain matter that did not develope. cannot be drained cause it will just fill back up with fluids.. so there nothing they can do but she is expected to live with that being said. other then that she is perfect........

  • Congrats Mommy, I've been following your updates. Where the tests that showed brain damage or any type of disability coming back the same now as they were before? or have you been given a better update in that area too?

  • maxsmom.... she only have the infection of the brain the other two have been ruled out.. the CMV infection damaged her brain pretty bad. we wont yet know to what extent, but walking crawlin talking learning will all be hard, she may need hearing aids and may end up having Cerebral Palsy
