The Physical Therapists got her up and walked her around her bed yesterday and her speech has already improved! Overall, the doctor is very pleased with the surgery and her progress. They were hoping to dismiss her today
Her skull cap is a strong acrylic and will be stronger than her actual bone. She has nine titanium plates with 18 screws attaching it to her skull. Sharon said that her pain seems to be minimal.
Research has shown that once the skull cap is replaced, the speech and cognitive skills return rather quickly. I don't doubt that she will hit the ground running now!
Such a relief!!!
