Elise,Nice to meet you. My daughter is 5 and was diagnosed a year ago Jan.She had both surgeries just a few days apart.They decided not to wait because the strokes were getting too frequent.She had a stroke on our way to Boston the day before surgery, and strokes on both sides 4 days after the first surgery.She has been stroke free since the second surgery.We think that being off the asprin for surgeries wasabig factor in her strokesaround that time.We are very careful not to forget this.I know what you mean about answering questions to Dr.'s and nurses too.I actually printed up info for her primary care Dr.and for the teachers therapist and nurse at her school.I hope your daughter has been healthy since her surgery. Last year I must admit was the worst year i have ever experienced in my life.We were never so happy to "ring out the old and ring in the new" this new years.
