Where were you living when your daughter was at Tulane? Did you meet the social worker,Whit Tabor? He was the head of social services there but not sure when.
Are you an evacuee or living in SC?
My daughter and I say of her neurosurgeon after he redid her shunt "He is a much better surgeon than he is a barber!"
She is allowed to wear a hat at school because right now her hair seems to be growing sideways except for a few tufts that stick straight up. She had her first shunt at 9 days old and had it replaced at 4 weeks old due to an infection. She had another type of brain surgery at 3. But she handles it so much better than most adults would.
