Success

Beckett's surgery lasted from 1:15 until about 5:30. Dr. Stevenson came out to talk to us and said everything went very well. We finally got to see Beckett about 6:45. They had to shave a really big section of his hair on the opposite side as where his EVD was. He looks pretty pitiful as far as hairstyles go. I think we are going to ask neurosurgery to shave his head completely and just start over. He only has a very small patch of hair left anyway. He was in quite a bit of pain tonight and in no mood for voices or touching. We didn't stay long, as we were really just making things worse for him. Heartbreaking, yes. Hopefully tomorrow he will be feeling a little better and will bounce back from all this and get back to just being our Beckett. Praise God for continued answered prayers and another successful surgery.
