Thanks for asking AbbysMom. Amber is doing really well. Except for the area that was opened in her skull, her head pain is gone. During her surgery, a small hole was opened in the left ventricle, deep in her brain. The doctors hope that the hole will remain open, so the excess fluid can continue to drain. That will relase the pressure that was causing her head pain & possible future brain damage.
So far...the hole has remained open.
She will be back in my area next week, from her parents home, for follow-up appointments.
Please continue your prayers for her...it will be a while longer before we know for sure the the hole in her ventricle will not close. That is what we are praying for...that the hole remains open.
Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers.
