Well guess what after 14 hours of surgery and she made it through with flying colors! Yes they did put a stint in her IVC and Liver back in and thankfully saved it. She has had 13 surgeries in 5 months. They finally narrowed it down to Neuroblastoma stage 4. She has been through 6 different cycles of chemo every 4 weeks inpatient along with unexpected inpatient visits in between Chemo. She underwent a stem cell transplant inpatient for 4 weeks.

Suregry was sucessfu in the removal of the tumor and she is now recovering with treatments TBD.
