Surgery Update

Dr. Weiner just came out to let me know they are closing. He said Gabrielle tolerated the entire procedure very well. He said there was very little bleeding. He removed any suspicious tissue that remained. He removed an area in the right frontal region, the amygdala, and a little tissue that was lying over the thalamus. I asked if there were any obvious areas of connection and he said you remove the tissue assuming it is connected. He stated that he aggressively removed any questionable tissue.

Presently they are working on a titanium mesh closure to avoid leaving behind any soft spots like Gabrielle had previously. Surgery should be complete within the hour. She will have a post-op MRI and then head to the ICU.

I’m praising God that Gabby has been safely carried through another brain surgery. Please join us in prayer that she would avoid any post-op complications.

I’ll update later tonight.

  3. I just want to let you know that you are all in my thoughts. I hope Gabby is recovering well tonight and that she has a restful night of sleep.

  4. We pray that this is the last surgery for precious Gabby. She has been through enough, and now it is time for all to heal.

    God Bless, and please keep us up-to-date.
