Shunt Today

At this moment Beckett is in his second surgery of his precious little 9 day life. They made the decision this morning to do his shunt placement. The ventricles in his brain were enlarged since the last CT scan, meaning that the shunt is indeed necessary. As a matter of fact, right before we walked up to the surgery floor, we noticed that the EVD site was leaking. Therefore, there is too much fluid for his little head to handle if it was leaking out. The neurosurgery nurse said that was our little reassurance from God that this shunt truly is something that he needs. 
Pray for skilled surgeon hands. 
We are doing well and just got an update that all is going just fine in the OR. 
Praise God!
