Quick Surgical Update

Kevin is getting his head all closed up as I type. I was told that the surgery went well. It took about 3 1/2 hours and they did the shunt first and placed the flap next. His flap didn't quite fit right, but they shaved it until it was correct.

Gotta make some phone calls. Keep those fingers crossed that this fixes the fluid issue...

I was just logging on to check and was very grateful to see this update. Continued prayers and support are coming your way for quick recovery and that this surgery fixes the fluid issue once and for all.

Soon we will be back to Subway and Cheesecake Factory and even greater strides.

Leslie, this is my first visit to yours and Kevin's webpage. I just read all of January's and God bless you both for what you are going through! I pray for you and Kevin and your family that his recuperation continues to go well and more quickly. I hope and pray the surgery went well and Kevin is up and walking as we speak. I really miss seeing and talking with you since I left the house! Will email you today. Sharon Moran
