Also, you and I -;)- have talked about the fact that Jack's shunt is coming up on a year old. When we landed in Atlanta, he had a horrrible time. He was crying, and crying, grabbing his tummy, and did the sign for hurt, over and over again, over his forehead. I called NS and they said, it's very commen for kids to have trouble with the change in altitude(we went from 3000 ft, to sea level), and are more sensitive, to a change in pressure. And just to watch him. Well, once we got to MB, he was fine, like nothing had happened. He did struggle on take-off, but it could have been cuz he didn't want to wear a seat belt. I don't know. And coming home, he was fine.
But ever since then, he has been acting strange. At least daily, or every couple of days, he tells me his head hurts. And I catch him sctratching his forhead, in the same spot, right above his eye all the time too. And he's taking really long naps. But seems to be fine, when he's awake. Ugh... So I called the NS office, and told her all these things, and told her we would be up there on monday, and can we hop over to CT, and just check.
She said fine. I kinda hate that too... They were supposed to tell me, I'm overreacting, he's fine! But then of course I'd be annoyed if she said that to me. *rolling eyes* There's no happy medium is there??
I also think it could be his eyes. I have thought for a while he might have an issue, with depth perception. He won't step on something, he can see through. For instance, the crack in an elevator. He pauses, and steps over it. Then one day, we were at a park with a slat bridge, and he refused to walk on it. Then...in MB, he refused to walk on a marble floor. I took pictures so I could show, YOU, and a doc, if I need to. We walked across that floor several times a day, he refused eveytime. And not just refuse, he was honestly scared of it. He would shake and cry. It was very interesting.
So...we're squezzing in a CT scan, along with seeing 6, I think, different doctors. I did make an appointment with an opthomologist, but it's not until august.
Wish me luck, I'll let you know how it all goes!
