Surgery update

Just got an update from the OR. The cyst has been deflated and they're working on removing the tumor, but they do know they won't be able to get all of it. This is what they prepared us for, but still not great to hear. They said Summer is doing well and they'll touch base in 1.5-2 hours if they're still in there, or they'll call sooner if they start wrapping up before then.

I should have mentioned in my prior post how Summer is handling all of this. There really hasn't been any change in her personality, except that she seems very tired without the cranky that usually comes with that. She has only been fussy when the nurses are taking vitals or adjusting her IV, or she realizes how hungry she is since she hasn't been able to eat since 8:30 this morning. She is mostly content to just lay talking to us with her blankie and her binkie. She was still playing peek-a-boo with us, even though she can't see.

I hope that no matter what happens with her vision or the treatment we have to go through, she stays the super-smart cheerful Summer we all know and love.


  1. Glad to hear that she is doing well so far, but sad to hear about the tumor. Thanks for the update.

  2. praying for you Jessica and little Summer. You are in good hands but I am sure all of this is overwhelming. Alot of people are pulling for you.
