Abby came through surgery ok and is recovering in ICU. The doctor said they removed most, but not all, of the temporal lobe. He felt like he got a lot of the tumor but not all of it. She may have some peripheral vision loss but that should be the only side effect to expect. The preliminary results from the tissue sample was inconclusive so it will be 7-10 days before they know exactly what type of tumor it is and develop her treatment plan. Her face is starting to swell and will continue for several days. She has woke up and talked to us and she is moving her arms and legs. You can tell the incision site hurts but they are keeping her well medicated overnight. She will have another MRI in the morning then move back up to her regular room. We don't know exactly how long we will have to stay, probably 5 days.
We are so grateful to God for bringing our baby safely through surgery. Please pray that she will have a speedy recovery with minimal pain. Also pray that the tumor will be slow growing kind that will respond well to treatment.
Thank you all for the prayers today!
