Elliot did great in surgery and is now working on recovering. The anesthesia really knocked him out and he is so sleepy that he is forgetting to breath on his own. He may have to have a breathing tube till tomorrow, but we know he has strong lungs, we just need the anesthesia to wear off. He has a crescent shape scar on the back of his head and a little scar on his belly. Shunt infections are pretty common but we are just hoping that his body reacts well and that it does its job effectively. I broke out of the hospital again to be with him during surgery, but now I'm exhausted and probably did too much on my 2nd day after surgery. We feel really confident and happy right now. More updates later.
