Written August 25, 2008 

Hannah just made it out of surgery. 
It took about 4 1/2 hours. 
She did really well through the surgery. The doctor said that prior to the start of the surgery a instrument detected n0 movement in either leg then after they removed the tumor her left toes started moving.
The tumor that was removed from the first surgery had already started to re-grow. 
It has only been two weeks since the first surgery.
This tumor is super fast growing. 
The tumor that they went in to remove was from Hannah's T10 to L3 vertabra.
The doctor did have to remove a portion of each of these vertebra.
The doctor also put some sort of barrier between the vertebra and the abdomen area. The tumor has derived from the L1 and by putting this barrier in place, if the tumor regrows in either of these places it "SHOULD" not penetrate into any other area.
Hannah will have MRI tomorrow to make sure she is not leaking spinal fluid and to check everything out again.
I'm just about able to go see Hannah so I am going to go. 
I will try to update again tonight or tomorrow.
Thank you for all your prayers and faith.
God is in control of our little Hannah.
