    kjhalstead,

    I apologize that I did not see your message to me until just now. I am sorry to hear about your daughter and understand how the last 7 weeks must have been hell. I don't have any personal experience with neuroblastomas in somebody so young. C7 is indeed the main spinal cord segment that controls the triceps. However, C6 and C8 also contribute to the triceps. In a person who is so young and has yet to develop, I suspect that any deficit at C7 could be compensated for by C6 and C8 over time. I think that your daughter will improve, get off the respirator, and recover most of her function. The weaning should start as soon as her lungs are able to get enough oxygen. The longer they wait, the harder it will be to wean. Things happen very quickly with kids and I suspect that she is probably off the respirator now. Wise.
