Here is the latest email from my brother....who was down at Vancouver Children's hospital for Ella's follow-up appointment/MRI yesterday...
"The neurosurgeons said, "you can tell your family that she had the BEST possible outcome for the procedure." Basically, she exceeded all of their expectations with the ventricles actually shrinking in size so much that there is now room around her brain for it to grow into. It was pretty cool because the doctor showed us both the pre-surgery MRI and the one from today side by side on a computer and he was able to scroll through different layers of the brain and show us how everything changed since the surgery. We could even see the hole that they made in the floor of the 3rd ventricle! So, praise God and thanks for praying for her. We'll be heading home tomorrow as planned with another check-up scheduled for late September.
