It's over! Charlie came through his surgery beautifully. His doctors are very pleased with his new head shape and said that we have every reason to expect a swift recovery. Charlie is now resting peacefully in the PICU. He is feeling the effects of left-over sedation as well as his pain medication, but this is helping him to sleep and stay calm. He has some slight swelling and bruising both of which will increase over the next two days. Right now, however, he looks beautiful. Jack and I are amazed and awed by his new head shape - his sweet perfect face was untouched and he looks like himself. Thank you everyone for sending your healing light and loving thoughts to Charlie today. We are filled with gratitude.
