Out of Surgery and back in NICU...PRAISE GOD!

CeCe is out of surgery and doing ok. The neurosurgeon called us and said that she did very well and that it was an easy close. She had enough of her own skin and didn't need a patch. He said it is also a smaller lesion. For now they will keep an eye on her fontanelles and watch for signs of increased hydro. He also said that her mobility is great...she is operating at an S1-S2 lesion level...she has great muscle tone too.

When they got her back to the NICU they noticed her breathing was shallow and they had to call in the respirtory docs and hook her up to a nasal cannula to force warm, moist air into her nasal passages and "remind" her to breathe.

In my opinion...she looks and squishy...just hooked up to a bunch of machines.

And most sincerely...thank you for all of the prayers....they've been answered 10-fold. She is a spunky, fiesty, and beautiful little girl (with HUGE feet!) and we prasie God for her and thank all of you for your love and commitment to our cause over the last several months. God is good!


  1. YAY! So glad it went well, and S1-S2 sounds fantastic! Maddie had huge feet too...My parents got us flowers with big baby feet stuck in them as a joke bc she looked so funny...funny thing is, they didn't grow much at all the first year, so now they look proportional. Anywho...Congrats again, and have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Just want you to know we're praying for you. Sounds like a lot to be thankful for at this time of year.

    May God bless you.

  3. Well, hello Gator!!
    "Pink and squishy" sounds perfectly wonderful to me for a new baby girl! Your dad forwarded your blog to me and I am so impressed with you! Clearly, you learned all of this in college (although I guess I missed this class! haha).

    We will continue to send prayers from Texas to you and your family. Hugs to big sis too!

    Congrats on your beautiful pink bundle of joy!!
    Happy Thanksgiving! What a blessing your new princess is.
