Savanna not long turned 11,
She was diagnosed with epilepsy as a young child although with medicine it went away for a while, sadly it came back more aggressive then the last
Her seizures became medication resistant to the point she was having up to 30 seizures a day. She was given the option of brain surgery to fix the seizures.
She was scared, but after being accepted into her soccer team at school, one of her passions that she worked so hard for, she just wanted to be a normal kid
The surgery that was low risk, no side effects made her condition worse which led to second surgery. After the second surgery her condition worsened even more, Moo as her family calls her has been in a coma for 3 weeks, during this time she has battled Pneumonia, a staf infection and A collapsed lung.
The medication has now been reduced to see if she will wake up, she has made minor arm movements and is the kindest, funniest, bravest kid I know so there is no doubt she can do it.
Once that happens she will commence occupational therapy, speech therapy, A rehabilitation specialist and dietitian specialist as well as around the clock care.
Savanna has a 14 year old sister and a 9 year old brother, who are missing her as well as her mum and dad, who are two of the kindest, generous people I've ever met and would give you the shirt off their backs.
Any help to release the pressure so they can just focus on mending their little girl would be massively appreciated, every $1 counts, even if you can just share for awareness please, and bless you all ♥ #epilepsyawareness #epilepsywarrior #epilepsy #neurosurgery #littlefighter #instadaily #awarness #godbless
