Best possible outcome

Orien Rose's surgery went perfectly. Everything went really, really well. She has a skull and a brow. The surgical team says they’re DONE inside her head. Like, done. There was very little bleeding, so healing should be fast.

Christine has written details here.

Orien just sent me a picture of her. I’m not posting a picture of a girl in a hospital gown all over the Internets, but she looks damn good. Sitting up, eating breakfast, signing “I love you” to the camera (Orien is a Sign Language Interpreter, and Orien Rose knows a little Sign as well).

Edit: Got permission from the parents to post a picture: go here.

Thank you all for your help.
