surgery is coming!

I said there was much to report on and I can't even remember it all. But this is a rather important bit of information that some may want to know. One of the doctors who came in this morning was Dr. Walker, the surgeon who put Shannon back together. He came in at the request of those trying to plan what is next for Shannon. He looked her over and said, "I think we can do surgery next week." And Shannon piped up and said, "You can't do it sooner than that?" It really caught him off guard and he chuckled saying he was going to be out of town until next week but although he didn't usual do surgery on Monday, he would set it up for Monday. So the tentative schedule is that next Monday Shannon will have the surgery to replace the bone in her head. Friday they will do an MRI and I think a CT scan and if all is clear, she soon will not have to wear the helmet she so despises!
