Tori came through her surgery with flying colors! She still really isn't awake but the surgeons said everything looked great and they will most likely go in and remove the stints in a couple of months! Her little face looks bruised and swollen! Poor baby!

Of course the surgery was supposed to start at 10 AM and it didn't start until noon, poor baby was STARVING and not very happy with any of us! It was really weird to be the ONLY people in the surgical waiting area, there wasn't even a receptionist at the desk. About 50 minutes after they took her back I heard the phone at the desk ring and after about the 3rd ring I said to Jay "I think we better answer that, since we are the only people here" It was someone calling from the OR telling us the surgeons were on the way out to see us. Even though it seemed like a fairly simple surgery, the surgeon said she would need to be in the hospital at least 3 days post surgery (not an issue since she is still having feeding problems but he was unaware of that issue), so I guess there is a lot of fear over infection since they released Brett 2 days after brain surgery!

By 2 PM we were back up in her room and she seemed comfortable. Hopefully she will continue to rest tonight and tomorrow start working on her feeding!

Prayers for her healing and comfort are appreciated!
