Jessica's mother, Kim Wyatt (left) waits near her
daughter's bedside prior to the start of an
operation at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. Surgery
was scheduled to repair a portion of Clements' skull that had been removed to
relieve swelling in her brain. Also waiting nearby in a hallway outside the
pre-operation preparation area are Clements' grandmother, Phyllis Palmer
(right), cousin Ashley (last name to come), 17, and niece Delaney Neese, 4.
