A Chiari Dinosaur

To help Jonathan understand what is happening, Nana made him a special dinosaur that had his surgery date, incision, brain, and even hospital bracelet. Jonathan loves it! #chiarimalformation #chiariawareness #zipperhead #tminus6daysuntilsurgery

In essence, the chiari decompression surgery is to make more room for the brain (the cerebellum, to be exact) at the base of the skull. The surgery also relieves pressure on the spinal column and makes the flow of spinal fluid better.

And speaking of dinos, this indoraptor headed straight for Jonny's OJ this morning.
