Neurosurgery told us surgery would be this week- Wednesday or later. So yesterday (Tuesday) I stared at my phone all day waiting for a surgery time. But by 4pm I had lost hope that was going to happen the next day. Then my phone rings during dinner… surgery on Wednesday! Whew!
We were supposed to go in at 1130am. There was a delay. Went in at 1pm and came out 2.5 hours later.
All went well. Neurosurgery put in a 2nd shunt – complete with its own valve. General Surgery did a laparoscopy of her belly to make sure her stomach was in good condition to absorb the CSF.
She is awake and doing well. 😊
Trooper. Superhero. Amazing. Our daughter. ❤️
And now Adrian and I pray that it works. 🤞🏼
