It is 8:55pm PST. Scarlett is out of surgery. She is doing well and is stable. We saw her as they wheeled her to PICU and she is moving all 4 limbs and coming out of sedation well. Hooray!!!!!
However, we're not done. The surgeon removed 70-80% of the tumor. He felt this was somewhat easily and successfully removed and he could have continued, but he was concerned about her blood loss. She lost twice her full volume of blood (her entire blood volume is equivalent to a can of soda). She was successfully transfused and is stable, but he wanted to be conservative, so she will go back into surgery next week to remove the remaining tumor.
We will see her again shortly. I am so proud of my feisty little girl!!!! Thank you to everyone for keeping us raised up; we're not out of the woods, but we are feeling confidant that we made the right decision for now.
