Post Surgical Trials

Quick Update on Jessie. I am mostly doing my updates on Facebook now, so if you are looking for more up-to-date status, please send a Friend Request to Cris Hall.

Jessie had 104.2 fever earlier. This sounds bad, but after brain surgery, this does not indicate a bacterial infection like it would in you or I. Basically, the spinal fluid has so much debris in it, the body goes into an immune response with fever. Hopefully over the next few days, this will get better.

She is still unable to hold food down, and is mostly lethargic, not drinking or eating.

She is out of PICU, and we are in a private room, which is nice. Kristi’s mom and dad are here now, and that made Jessie smile this morning. She has not had any more seizures, since the one immediately post surgery. Hopefully, that was just due to post-surgical irritation.

Thanks for all of your prayers.

Kind Blessings to all of you.

Cris and Kristi

We are thinking of you and hoping that Jessie is feeling well enough to enjoy some of the Christmas fun at the hospital.
