Happy Brain Transplant… er… Surgery Day!

My running joke for Riley is that Dr. E switched his brain with another brain 3 years ago today. The reality is that Riley had brain surgery 3 years ago and it really changed his life.

More recently, his headaches are way, way down. No longer is he using pain patches on a daily basis. In fact, I can’t remember the last time he used one. So, that is quite awesome.

Some of his other issues are still works in progress. Speech, drinking, fine-motor, all coming along, but still not where we’d like them to be. But, as usual, he just goes with it. It’s part of his life and he doesn’t know any different and, the truth of the matter is, life is good.
