Surgery is over!!!
Dr. Asano and then Dr. Sood came in and talked to us. They both said all went well. They removed the cushion that they planned on and then performed the MST over the entire sensi-motor cortex. When they replaced the grids, they did not see any spiking. Therefore, they did not feel it was necessary to remove any additional tissue which will give her a better chance at preserving the motor function in her right hand. This is GREAT news so far!!! Now it is a "wait and see" game to see how much weakness she has and how much therapy she needs. Just like we wanted Sophie to have lots of seizures to be captured during the grid monitoring, we are also wanting to see weakness immediately after surgery. But we are hoping it will only be temporary and she should regain her strength within two weeks.
Thank you for all your prayers, support and love.
