Second Surgery

Michel A perfect surgery! The operation was 7 hours long but everything went perfectly. They repaired the base of Michel's skull and she now has a plate in her head. I'm not sure what exactly was involved but it was very extensive. The doctors who performed the surgery are the director and associate director at the Chiari Institute, Dr. Milhorat and Dr. Bolognese.

They let me see Michel at around 3:30 PM but she was still out of it. She is spending the night in the recovery room and being sent back to a regular room tomorrow. She seemed to be in a lot of pain compared to Tuesday's surgery. I'm just glad that this is all over and we can start the recovery process.

Glad to see the op is over and Michel is recovering. Hopefully she'll be back home in time for Christmas. Mega congratulations to the doctors and your family and of course, you too, Thomas.
