Keep praying for Brent and Tish Horney – Surgery for Brent scheduled February 15

Posted on Facebook by Tish Horney

We’re back from meeting with the brain surgeon, and shunt surgery is scheduled for Friday, Feb. 15th. Dr. Dorai answered all of our questions, explained there’s a 5% risk factor with this type of surgery, which she’s been doing for 15 years. Brent will be in Sinai for at least an overnight, possibly another day depending upon how he recovers after the procedure.
We really liked the doctor, and are quite comfortable with moving forward for having this. Again, it won’t prolong his life but will make his life better if it improves his balance and memory for a while. Keep the prayers coming.

    We are scheduled to be at Sinai Hospital by 8:30 am on Friday for the pre-op MRI’s for comparison and the brain shunt surgery will around 11. Brent’s operation takes about an hour, then recovery for several hours before he’s transferred to his room, for hopefully, just an overnight stay. He’ll be released on Saturday as long as he doesn’t have any lingering recovery issues. Please pray for a steady hand on the part of the surgeon as she drills a hole into his skull to insert the shunt.

    Off to Sinai for Brent’s surgery this morning. I’ll post later after I’ve spoken with the doctor. Keep the prayers coming….I know he’s anxious.
