Success

Just to give everyone a quick update, the surgery was a success.  The surgery posed a few different obstacles as we found out that one of the problems causing the misshaped skull was extra bones in her skull.  We also discovered that she had two small holes in the top of her skull as well.  The doctor had initially planned on making two incisions (one in the front and one in the back), but due to her situation, the doctor made one incision across the crown of the head.  The surgery lasted approximately 2 hours and we can already see the results even with the swelling.  We fill blessed that we were able to be here in Phoenix with a good children's hospital and a great pediatric neurosurgeon to take care of our daughter.  We also want to express our gratitude to all the support from our family and friends.  Here are a few pictures of Kalli after the surgery.

We're glad things went well with the surgery. We'll continue to pray for you guys in the coming weeks and months as she recovers.
