13 yr old in skiing accident *update* **update again** UPDATE 3 (4/1/13)

So my 13 year old cousin was in a skiing accident the other day. She has swelling in her brain and had bleeding (not sure if it's still bleeding). As well as a dangerously high fever, so she was flown to a childrens hospital where she was diagnosed with avm brain and put into a medically induced coma due to the swelling and fever that spikes if she's awake. They had planned on doing brain surgery as soon as the swelling and fever went down but just a little while ago she took a turn for the worst and they had to do emergency brain surgery. I don't have all of the details but she needs a lot if prayer (or whatever you guys do) and her mother especially needs it. I don't even want to imagine what she's going through. :(

UPDATE 1: haven't heard anything, so i asked to see if there were any changes. Her surgery started at 11am . They removed the clot and are now trying to fix/remove/repair the avm. Estimated time for surgery is 4-5 hours... It's been just about 5 hours so it probably won't be a whole lot longer depending on if they find anything else or if something happens. Will update again after she's out and i know how she is.


UPDATE 2: she is out of surgery. The surgeon(s?) Removed the clot and removed/repaired the avm as much as they could. Now they are just waiting and hoping she wakes up.

UPDATE 3 (4/1/13)
My cousin has been awake, she's following commands and can breathe on her own some. They will be taking her off the ventilator and sedatives around 2pm to see how she does on her own. She still has a very long road to recovery, so prayers are still needed for those that pray.
Thanks to those that have been praying for her.

I am so sorry, hun. Hugs to you and your family.

My friend was on a church trip back in 2004. He had an accident. He was 17 and passed. He passed before they induced him into a coma. 

Where did this happen, may I ask?

My friend died in North Carolina
