Surgery - Finished

6:35 PM

Let out a big sigh of relief because the surgery is done! We all just did! Aiden just underwent an eleven hour operation.

Dr. Mathern just finished talking with us and he said, in a nutshell, everything went very well and we should be able to see him in about an hour.

He also said that the right side of Aiden's brain was COMPLETELY affected by Sturge-Weber and that everything needed to come out. When they attached the electrodes to the surface of his brain, there was NO activity at all.

Amazingly, Aiden will be awake and alert enough to interact with us a little. Dr. Mathern told us what to expect over the next few days and not to "sweat the small stuff". Overall he was very pleased with the surgery.

Thank each and every one of you for your positive thoughts and prayers.
