BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — Almost one week after Kalamazoo shooting rampage survivor Abigail Kopf underwent her second skull replacement surgery she continues to fight some severe headaches.

Kopf will spend the next couple weeks attending quite a few doctors appointments with hopes of getting her stitches out next week – one year since the Feb. 20 Kalamazoo shooting rampage.

Last week’s surgery, Feb. 11, went very well, according to Abbie Kopf’s Recovery page.

This is the second time Kopf had to have a plate inserted into her skull; the first had to be removed over the summer after one of the incisions became infected.

Kopf, now 15, is one of two survivors of the shooting rampage that left six people dead across Kalamazoo nearly one year ago.

A memorial is going to be dedicated to those killed and hurt by the shooting. The plans for the memorial will be released on the one-year anniversary of the shooting at the Wings Event Center.
