God bless you.

With prayer and care,

Well the surgery on the 8th lasted about 7 hrs, Then in recovery for 2 more hrs. Thursday morning he was talking a little. But he had a severe headache, and could not open his eyes for more than 3 seconds. Friday still has headache, still eyes closed, but talking a little more when actually awake. Saturday morning still no improvement. So the doctor did a CAT scan. After reviewing the results and sending him for a MRA, 7:30 pm Saturday night they took him back in for more surgery. The substance they use to readhere the piece of bone removed during surgery-(gelfoam), instead of filling in the crack and the rest reabsorbed, this substance started to expand. So it needed to be reopened and all the gelfoam removed. This was causing pressure on the brain & this is why the surgon said we did not see the type of improvement we should have seen. It is now 11:05 pm Saturday night, the doctor just called up to the waiting room to say he was now out of surgery. They did not apply the gelfoam, hopefully he does not have any bleeding, since the gelfoam also acted as a buffer between the skull & brain & brainstem. Now I'm waiting for him to come out of recovery, so it's back to the waiting room. Hope the couches are soft because I'm not leaving this hospital. Will pdate again in a while,
Michelle

Thx for the update Michelle...

I'm sure this will only be a minor glitch in his recovery...

It just goes to show that surgery is not...and will never be...an exact science...

I just heared congresswoman Giffords will be leaving the rehab facility to become an outside patient...

If this news doesn't give you and your hubby a boost...I don't know what will...;)

Take care...

UPDATE! Steven was discharged from the hospital on Friday evening (6/17). He went straight to the rehab facility. He can walk with assistance from one person. He does his own bathing and feeds himself. His speech is good, but a little slurred. His memory is also good. They said in speech & memory therepy that it is a little slow, but this will continue to improve as the brain swelling goes down. This morning they had him going up and down steps. So overall he is doing quite well. He was to return to college on 6/28, but he may not quite be ready. If not, we are looking into his return in 4 months when the next class is in their fourth semester, this will then be where Steven would have been.
Thanks for all the well wishes!
