Michael Warechowski IV

Updates on our sweet Michael

Prayers and positive thoughts needed

on December 30, 2013

I’ve been full of worry since my last update. Shortly after the surgery, Michael seemed like he was feeling better – like the surgery had worked and he was going to be even better than before. That didn’t last very long. The last two weeks he has been increasingly uncomfortable and a week ago today he had his first ever seizure. Obviously, it scared the crap out of me and we are all baffled as to why now, after relieving the pressure from his brain, is he even more uncomfortable and why did he have a seizure? Michael also threw up last Thursday which again, was hopefully going to stop after the surgery.

My concern is that the shunt surgery only relieved the pressure temporarily and now the shunt is not working and the pressure is building up again. I could be prematurely freaking out or being a worry wart but that is how I practically saved his life – by asking about hydrocephalus – By being a worrywart mother and looking into any possible option.

I am waiting to hear back from his neurosurgeon and hopefully we can get him in for a CT scan today or tomorrow to make sure that there is not fluid buildup around his brain again.

On a sidenote, we did have a nice Christmas. It was very quiet but we did get to see lots of family and as long as Michael is okay, we will get to have dinner with friends tomorrow.

So we are asking for crossed fingers, prayers, positive thoughts, love and well wishes that nothing serious is going on. Hopefully, Michael is just still recovering from the surgery.
