Becky and Kevin’s daughter Hayden is having surgery today for what is called craniosynostosis of the metopic suture. Her surgery began around 9:30am and the first update was at 12:45pm. Here is what Becky said:
The Neurosurgeon just came out finished with his portion. She had a small dura tear (the membrane that protects the brain) at the bridge of her forehead. The bone was a little extra thick and the dura had kind of grown into the bone. He didn’t seem too concerned, sutured and placed small graft. Plastics are rebuilding, putting back together and it should only be a couple more hours.
We praise the Lord for his protection thus far and the success he’s given through the surgeon. Continue to pray for little Hayden, for a successful surgery and recovery in these coming days and weeks.
Also, as we mentioned on Sunday, Mark’s mother is in hospice care in New York. The doctors have told the family she may live a few more days, or a week. She is beginning to be delusional, and is progressively getting worse. She is in much pain. Please pray for relief for her and for God’s comfort to be with the family. They are more mindful and more thankful than ever of our hope we have in the risen Lord Jesus Christ.
Further Updates to either of these situations will be in the discussion below. You are encouraged to comment as well to assure these families of your prayers for them.
