Lennyn’s surgery has been postponed until noon tomorrow. The chief of Pediatric Neurosurgery at St Joe’s will be performing the surgery. We met with his assistant today and the MRI showed NO PVL (brain damage) which is HUGE NEWS. The pressure build up is causing her seizures, o2 dips, and feeding issues. Their hopes are the reservoir will drain the fluid until her little body absorbs the fluid on its own. If this does not happen then a shunt will have to be placed. Hydrocephalus is a lifetime disease and we will not know what developmental delays this pressure and her brain bleeds have caused until she is older but we’re really praying her brain needs the lowest amount of maintenance. #LennynStrong #NoMoreBS #TeamNoShunt
