well, today was the day that little Laura Lane went for her MRI.
i wanted you all to read the update that her mom, nicole, posted a little while ago
- Hey everyone. I thought that I would have really great news but unfortunately I don't. Laura Lane has surgery scheduled for a shunt Friday August 28th BUT WAIT there's more. The doctor is 95% sure that this surgery is going to happen. But I am leaning towards a miracle to happen.
He has agreed to give us one last chance. The MRI showed that her ventricles did increase and have extra fluid but he doesn't feel as though he needs to do the surgery tomorrow. So he said that we come in the office on August 27th, have her head measured. No more tests, scans, pokes or prods. Just a head measurement. If the measurement goes off the chart she will have surgery the NEXT day. If she stays on the curve and her head stays in line with the curve the surgery WILL be CANCELED.
So as of now, we won't know anything until the 27th. After that we are out of the woods or in the operating room. Please don't stop praying. This is a very very scary time and well as we all know from the previous measurement being WRONG lets just hope and pray that everything will stay inline. For those of you like me who likes to get specific in your prayers and talks with God, her head needs to stay between 44 and 45 CM. NO BIGGER.
Thank you all again. Take this to church, prayer groups, copy and paste it to your wall, email, or whatever to get as many prayers as you can. Thank you all for loving Laura Lane. ;)
