Meeting with Neurosurgeon

Had a good meeting today. He is very pleased with her progress. He said he is much more optimistic about her, and our baby is much better. They will tap her each day now to clear up the fluid faster. He is sure she will need a shunt. We are still praying and hoping that she won't. You could really tell a difference on the CAT scan compared to the second one, the brain looks much more consistent and healthier. And the second scan was improved from the first. God is surely making himself known already in her life and in this situation. Thanks for praying - keep em' coming!


  1. That is terrific news!

    Still thinking about you guys and praying for you everyday.

  2. That's so nice to hear!! A good day. :)

  3. WooHoo! i love it when God breaks the "normal" and shows Himself - especially through a precious child. He deserves and gets all the glory! You guys are always in our prayers -

  4. Psalms 103:17-18
    "The mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, and His righteousness to children's children, to such as keep His covenant, and to those who remember His commandments to do them."

    Grace and peace,

  5. Awesome news! Praying there will be no need for a shunt.


  6. So glad to read Sara is doing so well. Sweet pictures of her and mommy! If you don't mind me asking, what is the reason the neurosurgeon gave for saying he is "sure she will need a shunt?" Have they done any more head ultrasounds lately? Just want to make sure he's not just saying that because that's what most babies with this type of bleed need. Just a concerned mom who's been in your same situation and learned to ask ALL THESE questions. Praying he's wrong about the shunt.

    Take Care,
