Grid Surgery - Meet the doctors...

It's 2:55pm. We just met with Dr. Chugani and Dr. Asano. Talk about a dream team. Dr. Chugani, Dr. Asano and Dr. Sood are just amazing and caring doctors.

Here's the update from Brandon (I am going to try to eat something)...

The surgery is going well. They have completed placing the grids on the left side and Dr. Sood is currently closing. She has had no major complications. The next step is the burrow on the right side with 2 grids to be placed. Dr. Asano spent 15 minutes discussing what to expect next. Sophie should be in ICU by 7:00 and he expects that she will have 2-3 seizures within the first hour (the EEG is already showing activity...not unexpected). By tomorrow, they will start her on Dylantin and Depakote through her IV and start mapping the brain. We will keep everyone posted.

I think Sophie was so entertaining yesterday to make it easier for everyone. So very cute.

I, like so very many others, am sitting on the edge of my seat, literally, checking for updates regularly and thinking the best of thoughts for Sophie and all of you. Prayers continue to be with you.

YEAH...so glad to hear surgery 1 is over! They are the best team! Prayers that Sophie rests peacefully through the night! I also pray they gather the data quickly and can start the meds through the IV.

Oh, what a relief that the first surgery went well. Jennifer M called today to see how everything is going. She wishes you all well. Good luck tonight and hope you get a few hours of shut-eye.

Love
