Cora came out of surgery this morning, and is now trying to recover. The surgeon was able to take her top lobe, CCAM and all, and at least whatever happens next, that troublesome cyst is finally gone forever. It's not how we wanted it to happen, but we're dealing. Cora's hanging in there. She's had some organ damage, liver and kidneys, but it hopefully should reverse. Being so young, they do bounce back well.

We're not done yet, but the surgery was a major hurdle to jump, and for the moment, we all can breathe a little easier, especially Cora.

We're going to nap for awhile and then head back to the hospital to keep her company. She'd started waking up a little, and moving her little arm, all poked full of wires and such. For someone so tiny, she's very strong.

Thank you for posting this update - I've been fighting tears all morning thinking of your darling, tiny Cora in surgery. Even this atheist found herself praying a bit for her safe recovery. :)

You're being so brave. Stay strong and send Cora love from all of us out here worrying about her (and you). Hopefully there will be only good news from here on out.
