Callie has had three of her four loading doses of Spinraza. The second and third doses went well, although Callie had to stay overnight the third time around because her vital signs weren’t stable enough to go home.
We thought she would panic when she heard she’d be staying overnight, and her panic would have made her respiratory status even worse. But she actually said she needed to stay. For us, that’s evidence that God provides peace in all our hearts when it’s needed most. She steadily got better during the night and we went home the next day.
She’ll receive her next dose at the end of this month. But before then, she and I are taking a girls’ trip to the mountains (with Nathan coming along as well). Callie and I have a couple books to read together, and we plan to do what we always try to do — enjoy whatever each day brings.
