Now we're just waiting to see her in the post-operative suite!
Thank you for your prayers and all the emails, texts and comments here on the blog. I can't tell you how buoyed we are by your expressions of hope, love, faith and encouragement. We have even made contact with two other NICU family friends who are also in the hospital right now. With all the love near and far, we know we're not alone and that is such a blessing.
Ava's biopsy went well. The surgeon got all the samples he needed and she had very little bleeding and so far no other complications. They sent off the samples and we may get some preliminary information this evening. We're on pins and needles, but can't make anything go faster. She'll stay in the PICU tonight for observation, then it's back up to the Neurology floor for her to recover for a few days while we make the plan with the team. We'll likely be here through the end of the week. Beyond that, we've learned not to make plans.
Every breath is grace.
