Here is a picture of our visit on Saturday. The kids can't wait to bring sister home.

Faith is off to surgery again. No news yet, but we did get a little bit of clarification on what the surgery entails. The doctor told us that they will not actually be removing the supporting structure of Faith's spine, but taking a portion from it called the lamina. Although the picture below does not depict the exact scenario in Faith, it does give you an idea of what the doctor will be removing.

The x-ray below depicts the portion of the skull and the C1 lamina that will be removed. Most likely faith will have the C2 lamina removed as well.

The doctor expects the surgery to take about two hours, so we don't expect to hear much until around 12:00 AM. I will post again as soon as we know more. Thanks for checking in and for all your prayers..
