Surgery #4

Amy's surgery went "well" according to the neurosurgeon. All he really said was that it went well, that they removed some of the scar tissue from when she had the infection, and were able to mold the material to her head. We had a very brief interaction with him...I'm sure we'll know more tomorrow. We can't tell much what it looks like because there's a little bit of swelling. She has stitches this time instead of staples, which was one of her big concerns (outside of getting another infection), so that's somewhat a relief.

They didn't tell us she was done until she was about to be moved to the floor from the recovery room. We were all getting really nervous because it seemed like it was taking a long time!

Amy's resting in her private hospital room with a pretty good view of the city right now (although she can't really see it). She is already eating a little bit of solid foods and her vital signs are all good. She's in quite a bit of pain, but they're managing it well.

That's all for now. We'll keep you posted!
