On May 2nd, Alena just completed her lumbar puncture successfully and she needed some rest.
After the lumbar puncture she needs to lie down on the bed without pillow for several hours.
Pics taken on April the 28, 2018, now Alena can sit up by herself. She can keep sitting up without hands supporting on the bed, thanks to the modern technology and experiences of our Dr. Cheng.
