Day 4, Morning

Another fairly uneventful night. Mama did have a few of the staples come out of her head during the night, but it was just her scalp rejecting the foreign object, not a problem with the incision or her brain. They were able to easily put some new staples in, and her brain pressure remained steady. The doctors have not made their rounds yet, so if they have anything new to add I’ll post again after they visit.



We are so appreciative of everyone’s phone calls, texts, and emails, but we’re having a very hard time updating everyone who wants to be updated, so hopefully this blog will be helpful.  We promise – whenever we learn something new, we’ll post it here, so you can always come here for the newest information.  If it we haven’t posted in a while . . . then it means there’s nothing new to report.  Please feel free to leave comments – once Mama is up and running again, I’m sure she’d love to see your thoughts.  And, as always, we welcome as much prayer as we can get!

Today Mama had an MRI, and after about 7 hours, we finally got the results – “it looks good.”

After her surgery the area around her brain that had been filled with blood was now filled with air (which is normal). The CT scan on day 2 showed that there was a little blood in that area as well.  The MRI today showed that some of that air and blood have been reabsorbed by the body, which is exactly what we want to happen (it just takes a while).

Other than that, it’s been an uneventful day.  She’s still in a coma, and they’re expecting she’ll probably still be until morning.  Here’s hoping she’ll be awake tomorrow!
