The Story

Rowan was born 3 months premature at 27 weeks gestation. She weighed 2lbs 3oz. She had a bilateral intraventricular hemorrhage (brain bleed). This brain injury caused her to have cerebral palsy. 

She is now 5 1/2 years old and has plateaued with her mobility. She has had numerous Botox injections in both legs, wears orthotics all day and night and uses walkers, wheelchair and canes. 

Rowan is now a candidate for selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR)! We are so very fortunate to have health insurance but there are several medical expenses that will incur that insurance will not cover.

Rowan's surgery for SDR is set for April 20, 2015 at Children's hospital in Birmingham. Prior to this surgery she must have a total spine MRI (to rule out any abnormalities) and a thorough assessment by one of their physical therapists (likely the one that will be in the OR for her surgery). Unfortunately, she must still have to have her left femur broken and reset the year after her SDR. This rhizotomy will prevent further damage but not fix already damaged bones. Her femur has twisted due to her spasticity (tightness). Please pray for Rowan as she embarks on this exhausting, but necessary, treatment. 
Love to all,
the Scott family

Rowan is scheduled to meet with her neurosurgeon, Dr Oakes, July 8th. Please be prayerful that we get on the books fast! Even though surgery is tentatively in March we just pray it is not scheduled far from that day! Thank you to everyone praying for our sweet Ro!
