Update on Andrew's Surgery - 27
02/08/03     Laura Segraves McBride  (1982)      gravytrain@earthlink.net
Just wanted to let you guys know that my son, Andrew, will undergo his 4th and final brain surgery on Feb. 21, 2003 at 8:00 am. Please keep us in your prayers. The WADA test that was done on the 29th of Jan. was rather good news. When they put the left side of his brain to sleep(the one that's causing all the problems), he was still able to talk, understand, but had some comprehension problems that they thought were going to respond well to therapy.

Re: Update on Andrew's Surgery
Dear Jules,
Eveytime we've gone through this, I turn it over to God. Then, the situation becomes bearable. I don't look forward to practically living at the hospital, or eating the food there, but I'll do whatever it takes to restore Andrew. I actually feel sympathy for the devil dog! He'll so miss Andrew's constant attention and mine as well! But, he'll be a saving grace for Andrew when he comes home and to help him rehabilitate. Dogs after all accept you unconditionally, even when you become different. Thanks for the prayers!

Re: Update on Andrew's Surgery
Hey you guys,
Thanks for the continued support in prayers! Andrew's surgery has been moved to March 4th. Apparently, a child who was to have surgery on the 14th of Feb. was not having seizures confirmed so the surgeons could map out where to operate, so they had to move his surgery up to Andrew's original surgery date. This poor kid has to wear a grid for one more week in hopes he will have seizures that will map out his surgery spot in detail. These wires are implanted in the brain and come out of the skull. They are mounted to a battery pack that weighs 20 lbs. Andrew had to wear one 4 years ago, and it makes going anywhere quite an experience. Thank God for technology, and for a child's resilience and patience! We could all learn a little of that! Again, thanks for your continued prayers. In God we confidently trust!
