Joanise had surgery just a few weeks ago to relieve the symptoms of her hydrocephaly. She is doing really well and is having a great time with her host family and friends in PA. Before the surgery, Joanise wasn't terribly interactive and didn't show a great deal of interest in those around her. Her head was quite large and I'm sure the pressure was very painful for her. I'm told that since the surgery, she is developing quite a personality and a great belly laugh. Thanks for Chrissy for sharing this YouTube video of Joanise's giggles. What a wonderfully sweet sound!
