Hannah Update 2.26.08 8:28 p.m.

We are back in a regular room tonight, after our MRI this afternoon. The surgeon was very pleased with the results of the MRI, and we were able to look at the new films beside the old ones done in Hot Springs. The tumor is completely gone. The surgeon is confident that they got it all. When the pathology report comes back, we’ll know then if any further treatment will be needed.

Hannah has finally gotten some rest this afternoon, and is sleeping (Praise the Lord!) right now. She has not yet been able to get up or to eat or drink anything. They have finally, tonight, allowed a muscle relaxer in her IV. We’ve learned that following neurosurgery, they are not able to give any type of sedative, because the doctors have to make sure the patient is able to talk, respond, etc.

We have been placed in a semi-private room, so we now have a roommate, a 3 year old girl named Kenya, who also needs your prayers. She has had two tumors removed already, and will be having a brain tumor removed on Monday. It is possible that we could be moved to a private room eventually, and that would be an answer to prayer. We have a much smaller space now than what we were used to in the days prior to surgery. Hannah is definitely not yet up to visitors, and once visitors come back (which we are looking forward to!) we will probably need to limit the length of visits to about five minutes, to keep from wearing her out too much. We’ll know better how she’s doing in a couple of days.

Thank you again for all you have done for our family…we can never, ever thank you enough!

God is good, all the time!
