So after I posted the last message, he slept. He slept from about 3:00, until Steve inadvertently woke him up, around 4:30. After being mad as all get out, he fell back to sleep about a half hour later, and slept until about 8:30. Woke up happy, ran around with the kids, and fell back to sleep by 10:00. Woke up this morning, was happy for about an hour, then got really fussy, lethargic, and threw up.
I called and got the dreaded, "bring him back", and get a CT scan. Yesterday, the CT scan showed that his ventricles were smaller, but not back to pre-blockage size. Today, his ventricles are smaller-back to the right size, but he now has fluid, on the outside of his brain. Apparently his brain is not re-expanding as fast as the fluid is leaving, so it has gone to the outside, between his brain and his skull. They tell me this is common, and to watch him.
We all know this is my favorite thing to do! We have to go back and get another CT, next Thursday. And...if he gets worse, we have to bring him back.
Oh, and they tell me to keep him laying down as much as possible, so the fluid can go to where it needs to. YA RIGHT! I should have asked for a sedative. Although, he runs and runs around and crashes. It's 1:00, and he's asleep again for the 4th time.
It is so frustrating, because he's NOT typical! He's Jack. The fact that NOW he is having symptoms, worries me even more! While I'm glad to be validated, that YES he's not right, I don't like him not being right.
So, once again, keep us in your prayers. Not that I have to ask.... :)
