Out of Surgery
Becky is now out of surgery and headed to get a CAT scan before going to the ICU. On the positive side, she's awake and alert and the doctors were able to remove most of the tumor and the cyst they were targeting. She does have some side effects, though, which include facial paralysis and some pretty major double vision. The docs say the problems should dissipate in the next six months. Overall, a very positive and successful surgery. When she woke up she wasn't sure if she had the surgery yet, and wasn't in pain or sick, which was her worst experience the last time around. They used Scopolomine patches this time to ward against the nausea and they seemed to work wonders. We can't wait to get in and see her!
