The grueling 18-hour operation has disconnected the inflamed right side of his brain.
Lilly-May's parents, Carly and James, made the heart-rending choice for her daughter to undergo major surgery last October, knowing that it was her only hope but that she could not do it, and if he had done the disabilities he could be left with were uncertain, DevonLive reported.
However, he is already doing a "miraculous cure" after regaining his speech and some movement, and hopefully he can finally be able to go home this month.
Carly, 30, t old DevonLive: "We never heard a complaint from Lilly … even after her surgery lost her movement and half the sight did not even complain once. and my friends are frightened by her, they can not believe she's such a smiling child in spite of everything she's been through and she's still kind and loving, she makes me so proud.
