Snohomish’s Callie Harwood doing well after brain surgery

Snohomish basketball player Callie Harwood is in Children’s Hospital recovering from surgery Thursday on an absess in her brain, according to coach Ken Roberts.

“The doctors said the surgery went well,” Roberts said Friday afternoon. “Children’s is a great place to be if you need something like that.”

Harwood, a 5-9 junior forward who leads the Panthers in scoring at better than 13 points a game, has been in the hospital since last weekend, according to Roberts, who has been getting regular updates from Callie’s father, Greg.

Roberts said there have been a lot of rumors on social media about her health, since she has missed the past two games for the Panthers (11-5). He said she wasn’t feeling well when they played Kamiak on Jan. 9, but wanted to play anyway and did.

“We thought it was the flu, then we thought it was meningitis,” Roberts said.

Then came the more serious diagnosis, but Roberts said he and the family are bouyed by what the doctor reported following surgery. The coach said it’s been an emotional week for the team, especially since Callie’s freshman sister, Shaylee, is also on the team.

“We all want a full recovery for her,” Roberts said.
