ATLANTA - A Winder boy's mother says he had a terrible night after doctors re-implanted a drain to keep fluid from building up on his brain.

Posting on Facebook, the boy's mother, Stacy Halstead, says they had to briefly leave their hospital room at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta on Monday night during the tornado warnings.
