The CT scan went great! He is so funny in it. I wish you could see him. His head is "immobilized" and his eyes just look around. It's really quick. Barely 5 min. We just blow bubbles. Sadly, the CT tech, and I had a discussion, about how she needed to refill her bubbles. Sad, that I knew she hadn't done in since last week!!! This same girl, has done his last 3. *sigh*
So our appointment was at 12:30, and we walked out of Medical Imagining, at 12:36! We were a little early, but still. We go to the Dreaded Clinic B, and wait. They have lots of fun things to do, and there was even a sweet little girl, with the CUTEST pink and purple DAFOS!!
ANYWAY...We finally get called back to the exam room, and a little while later, the "fellow" comes in. Let me back up, You all know how nervous, and anxious I've been about this appointment. And...it wasn't with OUR NS. He is on vacation, but if it wasn't today, it would have been 3 weeks, and they didn't want him to go that long. So, the Fellow comes in, and leads with..."So what brings you into clinic today?"
WHAT???!?!?!? If you don't know why I'm here, I'm leaving! So my confidence level is waning. Whatever...I know she is just checking to make sure I'm there for the same reason she thinks I am. But, hello!!! She tells me, his ventricles look smaller, then May. I ask her, "Is the fluid still on the outside?" She says, "Oh ya, but it's not any bigger." I was so tired, by now it was 1:45 and had Emma with me too. I said,"So is this good or bad? She says, "Well, it's fine." Then she says, "Has Dr.Kestle talked to you about a shunt in the epid-something(I can't remember) space? OH MY HELL!!! Don't say things like this to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So I start asking her questions, and she says, let me get the doctor, I think he may be in surgery.
OH MY HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well, I'll just wait here...*rolling eyes*
So he comes in, and says generally, He's fine, but we need to watch him. He says to watch for overdraining now. OYE. Watch for him to want to lay down alot, and when he's up running around, he'll have a head ache. Oh, and of course, if he gets worse, bring him back in.
So we go back in a month. This appointment is with Dr Kestle. And the CT room better have refilled the bubbles!
