We're back!!!

Well we have been very very busy lately! We have moved to a new apartment and have been nuts packing and moving and unpacking. We are finally all almost over that darn cold we had except for baby Eddie who just has a little bit of a cough left.

Earlier this week we noticed that his shunt seemed to be much lower than before. It even slides up really high sometimes depending on how he's laying on it. So I called the neuro just to have him check it out. Sure enough he said it seems to have slipped about 2cm down. He is scheduling an MRI in the next week or so just to make sure all is ok. He said he sutured the shunt to the tissue so it shouldn't have moved and he also said just in case he left about an extra 7cm of tubing into the ventricles. So hopefully all is well but the MRI will tell us more. Good signs are that his soft spot is still looking great (no swelling) and so is his back. A big downside of the MRI is they have to sedate him which isn't much fun. As long as there is a good outcome it's worth it.

That's about it for tonight, I'm totally beat from all the unpacking and organizing so I'm headed to bed. Have a great night all!
