Updates on our sweet Michael

Home sweet home

on November 23, 2013

We got home from the hospital around noon yesterday. Michael cried the whole way home but as soon as we brought him in the house and layed him down, he smiled (as you will see in the picture). He had a good relaxing day yesterday and slept very well last night. He did throw up just before bed but the doctor said a little vomiting is normal after this surgery. He is going to have to adjust to the new (and less) pressure in his head.

When I talked to Dr. Escolar on Wednesday, she said Michael must be really tough because as much pressure that was in his brain, he should’ve been much sicker and had more severe symptoms. My son just amazes me. He is so tough, so amazing I can’t even tell you.

Dr. E also says that within about a month we should notice a significant improvement in his comfort and behavior. And I thought he was doing so well already! I’m excited to see how well he can be doing with out the hydrocephalus getting in the way.

On a unrelated note, Michael is now pooping on his own! Remember how I said he hadn’t pooped on his own in over 6 months and we’ve been having to give him enemas every 2-3 days? We’ll, he pooped all by himself a week ago last Friday, Saturday, Sunday, twice on Tuesday and again this morning! The doctors believe it is due to his acupuncture and CranioSacral therapy. I’ll take it!

So, We are just staying in this weekend, relaxing and hoping for a boring few days.

Thanks again for all the support. This week we’ve received dinner (at home and while in the hospital), healthy & unhealthy snacks, wine, balloons & flowers. And while in the hospital Michael received a little gift from his MLD brother, Landon. That really meant a lot. We couldn’t make it through all of this without all of you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
