Today Avery's fever seems to be under control, so that is wonderful news! She did a great job with her physical and occupational therapy and entertained everyone with some more of her giggles. Right now the plan is to put the shunt in on Friday, and then discharge her on Monday so that they can head to Memphis. They still don't have all of the logistics finalized as far as how they will get there, but hopefully a solid plan will be in place after they have a meeting with all of the doctors on Wednesday. It ultimately will all depend on what is best for Avery. They may need to take a medical flight, an ambulance, or they may be able to drive themselves.
The treatment plan has also not been finalized, but what is certain is that they will spend an extended period of time there- likely 6 months. There protocol will include intense chemotherapy followed by focal radiation. Then they will come home and do 6 months of oral chemotherapy. Right now the plan is for Jeremy and Jenn to both go, with Jeremy coming back in February when his business picks up and Jenn will stay with Avery. Their jobs have both been incredible through this. They are doing everything possible to make sure that Jeremy and Jenn are focused on the only thing that is important right now: Avery.
