Update Sunday 21st: Rocky recovery

Eloise is on the neuro-recovery ward, but has had a harder couple of days and has been a bit more poorly and quite weak. As a result the doctors decided to do a CT scan to check how her brain was settling post-op. The CT scan showed that Eloise continues to have air on the brain and also has communicating hydrocephalus from surgery (a common side effect). In essence the CSF fluid in her brain cannot drain quick enough and creates pressure in Eloise’s brain. They have therefore put an external drain into her head to drain the build up of CSF.

Please pray this is just temporary for a few days and she doesn’t require a shunt (involving another operation and will require long term maintenance). At the moment it seems that she is relying on the external drain to normalise the pressure in her head. She’s very sleepy, at times uncomfortable and hasn’t managed to sit up much, so we’d be grateful if you could pray that this issue improves naturally so she can start to regain her strength.

  11. Always appreciate your ongoing updates. It helps to have specific prayers when you pray.
    I have had many students, through my years of teaching, with “permanent” shunts. They are more common than one might have thought.
    I pray that her little body will have a rest from any unneeded surgeries and procedures. Thrilled to hear that the surgery went so well. Praying also for you two and extended family. I know how exhausting hospital life can be.
    Love and rest to you all,


  12. I’ve been exploring for a bit for any high-quality articles or blog posts on this kind of area . Exploring in Yahoo I at last stumbled upon this website. Reading this info So i am happy to convey that I have a very good uncanny feeling I discovered exactly what I needed. I most certainly will make certain to do not forget this web site and give it a look on a constant basis.
