Updates on our sweet Michael

Update

on November 20, 2013

Thank you for all the messages, texts and emails – it helps so much to know how much everyone cares.

Okay so here’s an update. I had to overnight the CD of Michael’s CT scan to Dr. Escolar up in Pittsburgh. They want to look at it first to determine if what they saw on the CT scan was actually fluid and not just space from his brain shrinking from the MLD. I should talk to Dr. E this afternoon and then we will know what the next step is. The good news is that’s because his brain has shrunk from the MLD it provides a little extra space for the fluid if he does have hydrocephalus. So there is not an emergency need for surgery. However, if it is hydrocephalus, the sooner they put in a shunt (basically a drainage system to relieve pressure) the sooner Michael will feel better. If it isn’t hydrocephalus, we have to go back to the drawing board to figure out why he’s been vomiting and so uncomfortable the last month. That is all I have for now but I will keep everyone posted as I know more.

Again thank you all for your love and words of encouragement.
