Update on Abi

See her cute braids...

Today they shaved a portion of Abi's head to place a BOLT. Essentially a bolt is a fiber optic cable that goes about 1- 1/2 inches into her brain to monitor her brain pressures. She was only responding to pain today not commands and the Neuro-surgeon was concerned. They also gave her some blood because some of her levels were off and that was also a concern. She was placed back on sedation meds.

Abi also has a new email address that her dad set up. This is for anyone who wants to write her a message. We will print off the emails and bring them to the hospital.  The address is
Weloveyouabi@yahoo.com

Abi's brother and sister from Florida are trying to get on a plane to come see her. Please pray the they will be able to get on a flight and that they won't have any issues getting here as they are using buddy passes.

Stephanie decided we are going to get abi the board game "operation" to play while she is healing when she comes too. We are going to put her face on the guy.

Abi goes back to surgery at noon tomorrow for her abdomen they need to start closing that up. However with the swelling that is not possible. They are going to put in some sutures, maybe one or 2 on top and bottom of the incision it will take 3-4 more surgeries to get her put back together, but they need to start getting her closed up little by little. Also they can not fix her pelvis because it is broken in the back, they would have to have her on her side or belly to do that and with her open abdomen that is not possible. I will post more later and keep you updated. The hospital has a medical library with computer use available!  Wooo HOOO!

Stacey, Thanks for allowing us constant updates, its comforting to be able to know whats going on. You know we would all be up there 24 hours a day if we could. Abi is a great girl and offers more love than most people i know. I can't wait to be able to receive one of her hugs for her hot mamma, I am Kami's mom and she has given me that nickname. Abi stay strong girl and get better!!!

This is like a worst nightmare. I sure hope she is able to heal and get to where they can start healing other places. Prayers.
