Julie and I went up to see Claire last night and took a bag filled with colored water up with us. The bag contained 3 1/2 ounces (or about 107 mL) of water - the amount of fluid that the radiologists drew from Claire's big cyst. We took these pictures below to show just how it was in comparison to Claire. I am not sure that the pictures really do it justice. I was amazed at how large it was. It filled the palm of my hand. Claire's belly is about the same size. The cyst measured 3.8 x 2.4 x 4.6 cm after they drained it yesterday. They hope to wean her off of the ventilator today!
Aunt Julie and Claire
The cyst in her belly was this big!! Looks like it took up her whole abdomen.
