Mary-Kaylin had surgery last night to check for a shunt malfunction. There are three parts to the shunt--a catheter that goes from the ventricles in her brain to a valve, the valve itself, and a catheter that goes from the valve to her abdomen. All three parts seemed to be working, although the catheter in her brain seemed to be draining somewhat slowly, so they did replace that part. Overall, the doctor feels like the shunt was working properly. This was good news, although it does not explain the severity of her headache.

She woke up at 3:30 this morning with a severe headache and still has it this morning. They are considering referring her to a Neurologist who specializes in headaches. No news yet on whether she will come home today or not.

Please continue to pray for healing for Mary-Kaylin.

Thank you!
