Our Brave Girl

Thanks to everyone's prayers and good wishes, Tesina came through her surgrey on Thursday very well! She had a benign lesion on her head removed. She was born with it, and although it poses no immediate risk, this type of immature skin can have a higher risk of cancer later in life - so it was worth the drama of going through it now to avoid that danger later. We shaved her head just before and the doctors did say it made it easier for them. Everyone at the hospital, from the cheerful receptionist, to the nurses, to the doctors in the PACU were all wonderful, and we thank them for their compassion as well as their skill.

    I can imagine how anxcious you all must have been awaiting the surgery, it's a brave decision on parents' part and thank God, it went well. Tesina looks super cute with her bare head, it will keep her cool in these hot days. Love the pictures of Fazal enjoying the spray park. We go to spray parks here too, it's a lot of fun.

    You made the right decision, parents. Now she won't that that place on her head to worry about. I love the picture with the title, "Our Brave Girl!"
    love, Leslie
