Neurosurgeon Update

*Before she went back for surgery.

Just received an update from the neurosurgeon, everything is going well. He said as they removed the skull from the head there were not any nicks or tears in the dura (the skin between the brain and the skull) which is really good news. Her bones are a little underdeveloped for her age which is not uncommon. This might actually make it easier for the plastic surgeon to mold them into the proper shape. As they were stretching out the bones in the face so that she does not have a mushroom shaped head, there was a little nick in a vein on the back of the head and they were able to stop it immediately and there is no problem.  She has received a blood transfusion because of her blood loss during the surgery.

The scariest part is now over, but we still have to wait to see her, which is not easy. They are working on putting the skull back together now. Once they are done with that they will let us know but it will still be a while before we can see her.

Thank you for your continued support, we can definitely feel it!
