Update on Madilyn's Surgery

Real quick I wanted to update everyone on Madilyn. Her surgery went well. The mass is not malignant, just as we thought. So Dr. Fabregas continued with his plan and removed the mass from inside the bone, and placed a concrete spacer inside the bone that will stay in place to seep antibiotics into the bone. She is also on IV antibiotics. Dr. Shore, her infectious disease doctor, has also been by to see her, and will be monitoring her during her stay.

We will be here at the hospital for several days. The number to her room is 404-785-4235 and she is in Room 235. Feel free to call us, we would love to hear from you.

Madilyn was in surgery for two hours, and has been sleeping pretty much since then. She doesn't feel any pain now which is good. Hopefully she will be able to sleep good tonight, and will feel more like herself tomorrow. We will see.

As for now, that is really all I know. The doctors' are waiting on some results from pathology to determine more fully what we are dealing with and what the future holds.

I will keep you updated as often as I can.

Special thanks to the Dentons! Thanks so much for thinking of us and for the gift. Madilyn loves to feel special, and you guys helped! Thanks again!
