Update on Caisla

I told you I would update you on Caisla's condition. She is in stable condition, but because of brain swelling, they had to do surgery to open up her skull yesterday. Her brain has no "dead" sections, as far as the brain surgeon could tell, but its damage is "extensive." 

We are still waiting and watching, I from a long distance. I hope I do not have to fly to Kansas soon, for that would mean bad news.

I will let you know if anything comes up, but in the meantime I'll try to post happier things. Right now I'm up to my eyeballs in papers to be graded.

  2. The body heals itself, again look for the best possible outcome and don't worry about this blog stuff.

  3. I'm not a doctor, but my understanding is that the longer one survives a head trauma, the better the chances of recovery.

  4. Sending prayers and best wishes for her and her Mother. May her recovery be full and quick. May they recognize the people around them who will offer strength and be helped by them. May they recognize the people who are not helping and ease them out of their close circle.
    And may you have the strength and love to be a very strong supporter.
