Thanks to all of you sweet people who prayed for Olivia. The surgery went well and she is in a room. Still on morphine and resting.
The Teratoma tumor was quite large and had overtaken the ovary. Unfortunately, the ovary could not be saved. It had already twisted her fallopian tube but they were able to straighten it and save that.

We are so thankful for the surgeon's skill and the excellent care she is receiving at a children's hosp. in CA.
They are, of course, sending the tumor to be evaluated.

She is very weak, as she has been unable to keep anything down since last Wed.

We are praying for her strength to return and a full recovery.

Thank you all for praying!

I'll update again in a day or so!

Oh my goodness, I just caught up with you. I'm so sorry your little granddaughter has to go through this, but I'm sending lots of loving and healing prayers to your entire family. It's so hard to see our grandbabies go through anything so hard as this. I'm sure each day will get better and better.
