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 periodic...so 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 great...pink 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!
