This cyst currently requires a 2 step brain surgery procedure, which entails fenestration of the cyst (making a tiny whole in the cyst and pressure whole in her spine), secondly a shunt to be inserted into the cyst and drain into the abdominal region through a tube. The shunt will be in her head for 2-3 years (God willing best case scenario) until the cyst is fully drained. Unfortunately the cyst cannot be removed due to the size and the inability of the brain to move back so quickly into the vacant spot that the cyst is currently occupying.
Due to this unforeseen circumstance, and considering neurosurgery is costly with so many MRI’s ect.. we are asking for support. Hoping you can make a contribution to help with all of Emery’s surgeries and medical treatments coming her way.
Lastly, even if you may not be able to contribute we ask you to please continue to keep Emery in your prayers as she is scheduled to have the first part of her Surgery September 5th 2018.
Thank you all so much.
