Hospital Land Part Deux

So Charlie had a bad night and this morning the nuerosurgeons came in and decided they were very concerned about the shunt. Apparently last night the radiologists looked at it, but this morning the nuerosurgeons took a look at it and were not convinced that everything was fine. They stopped foods, anethesiology came in and had us sign consent, and we were on the docket for a shunt revision at 2:30 pm. As a last resort they changed the settings on his shunt, but they didn’t expect that to help.

Well, they were wrong. He perked right up and has been playing and having a good ole time ever since. No one can believe it. We’ll be here another night, but things are looking good.

Can’t wait to get back so I can check on everyone in blog land.
