OK here is the latest! She is out of surgery, and it looks like it went well. She is by no means out of the woods, so we will keep a watch tonight with her parents.
They are now in the recovery room with her, as well as her boyfriend. The next 24hrs are critical for her. I, or Pebbles125 will update when we learn more.
Her parents are very well aware of the HW CP forum and many of the members here, and greatly appreciate all prayers for Vanessa and the family.
I have talked to the boyfriend by text, and he has been by her side almost every night.
Thank you so much for your comments here. I call Vanessa our HW CP poster child, and she is such a sweet and very respectful girl. Very polite to say the least!
