Poppy came back to her room about an hour ago. She seems to be pretty relaxed and sleepy, thanks to some extra sedation during her post op CT and shunt series X-rays-she is resting ‘comfy, cozy’ as our good friends in the CICU call it! 😉

Upon arrival, the nurse had noticed her pupils to be big and reacting much slower than her baseline, accompanied by lethargy. Maybe it’s because she just had brain surgery, you may say, but typically she is out of anesthesia by now, so just to be thorough, neurosurgery was contacted.

This is when we were told of her needing some help relaxing in CT, hence the additional sedation. The neurosurgeon resident seemed to be very pleased with the post op CT scan and is pretty confident this pupil thing is completely sedation related. She will of course, be monitored very closely tonight. She now has a vp shunt on either side of her head, completely independent from the other. Praying she is set for MANY many years to come!!!

We are praying for a peaceful night of resting ‘comfy, cozy.’ And….for a chance at discharge tomorrow?!?! Hey, you never know?! All things are possible with God, right?! 😉 Thank you all for continuing to hold our family so closely in prayer. It means so much to us. It is so encouraging to be able to read through all your comments as we wait- it encourages us to seek Him out and attempt to give all worry over to Him, so thank you!! And thank you Lord for what the neurosurgeons are calling a successful trip to the OR!! Can’t wait to see our girl back to herself, ready to play and tackle binky training, now that her brain is back in working order!! Praise God!!
