Jennifer.

I am glad the surgery went well and your great-niece is looking better. Please keep us posted on her progress.

I am sorry I don't know the answer to your question. However I bet there is a support group out of the hospital where the surgery was performed. Give them a call or check their web site (you may want to try the 'health' section of ivillage message boards also).

Good luck.
