I was just about to post that we had received notice the surgeons were closing when Dr. Hoover walked in to update us. He was very pleased with how surgery went! He had expected to find frank pus when they went in, but instead found yellow fluid (not sure what it was yet). Four in/out drains with antibiotic properties in the catheters were inserted. Maia's brain itself looked "not angry, but bouncy like it should." It is likely that antibiotic fluid will be used to flush the infected pockets several times/day over the next however many days. She is still intubated and at a CT scan to clearly identify where the drains are, but will hopefully be able to be extubated later today.
Oh, I just praise God and lift up all of you amazing prayer warriors who were storming heaven's gates for our beautiful girl!!
I will write more soon, but for now I just need to spend a few minutes in joy and praise with my hubby. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
