The procedure to install a permanent drainage shunt has been successful. The neurosurgeon in charge said that he picked out the most state-of-the-art shunt he could find and is happy with the results of the procedure. After spending overnight in an ICU unit for observation, she is in a regular unit now. Cuca video called with a few family members and was much more active! She was reportedly more talkative earlier in the day but was able to say some very coherent and complex sentences! Her condition is on the incline! We did manage to catch the general doctor and he said improvements are expected to happen but it is difficult to give a timeline, but she is doing well. Typically, a stroke patient’s eyes tend to gravitate in the direction of the affected portion of the brain where the stroke happened. Cuca is showing progress because during the video call she was able to focus straight ahead with her eyes for a few minutes! We continue to pray for her recovery and strength of mind and spirit!!
