My sister blames herself for choosing a hospital further from her house because it was supposed to be better. The hospital in Reston, Virginia was supposed to be top notch. She is telling herself that if she had only stayed in Manassass, Caroline would be normal. I told her this was flawed thinking, but she cannot stop.
The good news is that the doctors think she can be helped. The brain continues to mature (and heal) until we are 18-years-old. Caroline's brain is already healing and she is making progress everyday. I pray that she amazes us all someday with what she can do.
Thanks fellow bloggers for letting me get this out. I needed to vent.
