Fifth Surgery....Done!

Today was Aviana's fifth and hopefully her final surgery. They determined she needed to have a VP shunt installed. This is a tube which runs internally from her ventricle in her brain down to her stomach. This tube will drain all of the fluid away from her head.

The surgery went perfectly and she was recently brought back to her room. We are now waiting for the anesthesia to wear off. We have another step in this crazy process under our belts. Another step in the right direction. Yeah :o)

  4. I am thrilled the surgery went perfect. I too hope this will have to be Aviana's last surgery. She has been through so much. I am sure though that this experience will make her and the two of you also stronger people. I wish Aviana the best in her recovery.
