A quick update about how Amber is doing after her surgery.
When she woke up in recovery yesterday, after a 2 hour surgery on her brain, everything looked upside down to her but soon it resolved. She can talk, eat & move all her limbs. Although her head hurts, she is taking pain control meds that help. Here is the amazing thing...if she remains stable...she will be discharged from the hospital later today & can slowly resume her normal lifestyle. She will always have a small hole about the size of a dime in her skull. A small part of her beautiful hair was shaved off but she has enough hair to cover the area. It will be some time before we know how successful this surgery was but by the grace of God...this will be the end of it.

Words cannot describe how much your healing thoughs & prayers helped us get though this this difficult time.
Just knowing that you were praying for Amber help me stay calm & able to offer positive support to my family.
You are my wonderful, caring TCS family.
Thank you,

Keeping you all in my thoughts

Thanks for asking. I do have an update. Amber became unstable her first night out of the hospital. She ran a fever, was dizzy & very scared. We were all worried about her. It was a very stressful time.
Yesterday afternoon...she made great healing strides. For the first time since her surgery, she ate & had a bath. She is cutting down on her pain meds...we think that will help a lot. She is practicing walking to regain her balance & strength. She said last night that she has no head pain for the first time in months. That is really good news. We will know in a couple weeks if the hole that was made so that fluid could drain from her brain will remain open. If it does...she should have no more problems with pressure on her brain. I will update as soon as I have new info.
Please continue to add her to your thoughts & prayers.
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

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.
