Thank you so much for all your prayers for Suzie's surgery. We just wanted to let you know that everything went really well. The Neurosurgeon said he drained 10 ccs from her little head and will continue to do so every day until the fluid is under control. She has a little bulge on the top of her head where the fluid is accumulating. They will continue to monitor her over the next several weeks to evaluate where to go from here. Most likely, she will have a shunt put in place in the next four to six weeks. She is still pretty sedated right now and her little heart is racing, but they told us that she did very well so we are very pleased. She will be given pain medication, IV feedings, and remain intubated for the next day or two. We praise God for getting our little girl through this next hurdle and trust that He will continue to guide us down this new path. Thank you all for your encouragement and prayers!
Kyle and I were married on November 11, 2006. Our precious daughter Suzie Lorraine was born on July 18, 2008, three months before her due date. We have seen God's love so much, especially these past several months. We praise Him for all His many gifts, but most of all for sending His Son to die for our sins.
