Good news, Dr. Milhorat just came out to the waiting area and spoke with Sandy and I about the surgery. The hard part of the surgery is now over and they are just finishing stitching her up. She should be out and ready to see in an hour or so.
The surgery went very well. They did not have to remove as much material as originally anticipated. In fact, they left her c2 pretty much intact, removing primarily a section of c1 and portion of the skull. he also cauterized the cerebellum tonsils a significant amount. All in all, he felt like her CSF flow from the spinal column to the brain has been very much improved and is very optimistic about her recovery. Thank God for these good blessings! And thank you everyone for your continued prayers!
There is still some concern about the cranial settling that is caused by her Ehlers-Danlohs Syndrome, but since her recent low bone density scan prevented her from having the spinal fusion done, all we can do is wait and see. It may be fine he said, only time will tell.
I will post another update around mid-afternoon after the surgerical procedures have officially ended and we have seen Lacie.
