Danielle today at Pizza
For all the wonderful people who have been praying for
Danielle, she is now out of the hospital after a 25-day stay after a bb
accident involving one of our grandsons.. The bb went through her left eye
socket and into her brain. It was touch and go for awhile, not knowing whether
she'd live or die, and if she lived, whether she'd be paralized or blind or
have other brain damage.
In her first brain surgery after the accident,
pieces of her skull were removed and frozen to allow for brain swelling. The
second brain surgery was to remove the bb, which couldn't be done until the
swelling went down, and replace the skull pieces. Complications from the second
surgery included water on the brain, and a third surgery was performed to
insert a tube for drainage.
She came home Thursday, and today is
cheerful, happy to be home, and comfortable talking about her hospital stay and
all that happened to her. Thank you all for your prayers. It's wonderful to see
her like this.
Danielle took off her hat to show where her skull was stitched
back together.on the top and side.
The black eyes from the accident and
surgeries are almost gone, but for the next year, Danielle must wear a hat
outside to keep sun out of her eyes. This cute little gal is going to have one
fine hat collection.
