It's Over!

The surgery has been completed and Dr. Sood is closing her up. Dr. Asano just came and spoke to us about the procedure. She did end up needing the MST on her motor cortex, there was much less spiking after removing the three lobes, but it was still there. After the MST, the spiking was gone. She will have some temporary right sided weakness as a result but will recover complete use of her right side within a few weeks. Dr. Sood is supposed to come and speak to us around 6pm and then she will go to recovery around 8pm. If there aren't any other patients at that time we can go and see her then, otherwise we'll be able to see her in the PICU around 9pm.

We are so relieved this is over! Now we can focus on healing. Thank you for all of your support and prayers!

I would like to thank all of the parents who have children with similar issues for posting to Julia's site. You have been a tremendous support network for Lisa, Michael, and all of the people that love them. I know that your concern, love and empathy have helped make this diffuclt time much easier for them. I also know that no thanks are needed, but I can't tell you how much your comments have helped ease our pain and anxiety. God Bless you all!!
