It has been a while since an update was done. Since the last update,Dominique has been doing great progress. She has had a couple set backs too. Dominique has had the right side bone flap placed back in. Surgery went very well, her healing time amazing!. After the surgery Dominique said her first words, with a speaking valve in."Why,Hello, Brendan and awesome". After a few weeks to let the right side heal, Dominique was ready to go in and have the left side bone flap put back in. A few hours after the surgery Dominique was able to go home. Unfortunately a little over a week after she came home, Dominique developed a severe infection and Dr. Dumont and his team had to remove the left side bone flap again. Because the infection started in the bone itself, they had the throw that side away. Dominique had to spend another five days in the hospital where they had to put a PICC line in for the next 60 days or until the infection is gone. Through all of these ups and down's Dominique has stayed in a great mood. Next step, James and Dominique had the opportunity to go to Colorado and check out the Craig Hospital for rehabilitation.Dominique was able to get a physical evaluation and work on some of the equipment.
