Leeza’s been home with us for 6 months today. She’s come a long way (and so have we) and she still has a long way to go (and so do we).

She had another MRI scan Wednesday and there was no positive change. Because her brain isn’t growing the doctor is having to allow her ventricles to enlarge again to fill up the space so we can get rid of the fluid that’s surrounding her brain. Her surgery for May has been postponed until her brain grows and stabilizes and there’s no telling how long that will be. We’ll go back in in 2 weeks to do the whole process over again. We’re getting quite a collection of MRI ear plugs here at the house.

After seeing her MRIs I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised when we have conversations like this:

(after being in time out for whining)

Me: Leeza, can you tell me why you were in timeout?

Leeza: Ummm…Jesus?

Me: No, Leeza, I’m asking why you were in timeout.

Leeza: Spank?

Me: No, you didn’t have a spank. What did you do to go to timeout?

Leeza: Daddy?

Me: Leeza, do you have any idea what I’m talking about?

Leeza: Gracie?

Me: Never mind. You can go play.
