Our DGD, Sierra, had a great day today!! They removed her cranial monitor and her shunt and all pressures are holding steady on their own!! They also removed more gunk from when she aspirated into her lungs and the pneumonia looks good. Surgery will be at 2:30pm tomorrow!! We're both scared and excited at the same time!! Tomorrow is an important day, God's hands have been on her and we're praying for the doctors and surgeon and all of the surgical team!! Looking forward to the next big step of them slowly waking her up after surgery. No idea how long that will take, probably won't be tomorrow. Thank you everyone for your continued support, concern and your prayers, so very much appreciated!!
