Toddler in intensive care after marathon brain surgery

BRAXTON Rayner remained in an intensive care unit in Sydney after undergoing surgery yesterday for five-and-half hours to remove a brain tumour.

The two-year-old Darling Downs boy has a rare brain tumour,.

His mother, Kirsten Kay, said last night that he was in a stable condition after Dr Charles Teo removed about 95 per cent of the tumour.

The family faces an agonising 24-hour wait until specialists have a better understanding of how the operation went.

Braxton's mum also spoke of how the brave two-year-old was breathing by himself and actually showed signs of movement in his arms and legs.
