Carrie is out of surgery and in recovery. She'll be transferred to the ICU shortly, which is standard operating procedure. We just visited with Dr. Brain, who said the procedure went very well. He mentioned they were able to remove the whole tumor. The tumor was located on the motor strip for the left side of her body. Once she's awake, they will begin to work with her to see if she has any weakness on her left side. Overall, the doctor sounded very positive about how things went.
Thank you everyone for your prayers and support. HUGE sigh of relief thus far.
I'm a Midwestern girl who's lived in Missouri, Utah, Missouri again, Nebraska, Mississippi and Iowa. This is my story of life with my farmer-turned-professor husband, two exceptional little boys, and one extraordinary little girl who happens to have Trisomy 21, or Down syndrome. The stories you are about to read are all real; I couldn't make it up if I tried.
