Not So Wide Awake
Marion, Felix and I just finished having a conversation with Megan. She is awake and talking. She was complaining about having to be awake for 6 hours during the surgery. The Dr. said they would have never been able to finish if she was not able to stay awake. The tumor was intertwined with the blood vessels that feed that side of the brain. Dr. Ferson said that Dr. Lang was the man for the job, it was a mess in there. Dr. Brown said that Dr. Lang is able to suspend vessels and remove tissue at the same time, and that he was the man for the job. Dr. Brown said he is VERY pleased. The nurses asked us to stay out and let Megan rest. If she talks it stimulates the brain and can cause swelling. Genet and Hannah went in just to look at her, and she waved them into the room. She knows who they are and told them to come in and give her a kiss. Today is a good day in the Stork/Martinez family!!!
