Surgery Update

Quick update...

Lily's surgery was this morning. Everything went well and there were no complications. She had a few apnea reactions (forgetting to breathe) when coming out of the anaesthesia. They "nudged" her a few times and she remembered. Dr. Dilustro said that he was able to poke a large hole in the cyst and he drained some of the fluid away through the external port. (He did a CT early this morning to ensure that there were no changes and noted that there was a little more fluid so he felt like doing the surgery today was the best thing) now we have to wait and see what the cyst does. We are praying that it doesn't cause a blockage or refill and that normal flow is established. Next step after that would be the decompression of brain tissue. Please continue praying.

Proverbs 3:5 (King James Version)
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

Congrats! I hadn't checked in on Lillian in the last few days because of Christmas, and I see that you have a beautiful little present!
