A Kody Update

He was admitted and put on morphine last night which really helped the pain and made him pretty loopy...which in itself was pretty amusing :)

As it turns out he had too much fluid in his ventricles so neurosurgery came in last night and tapped his shunt, (put a needle directly through the shunt in his head) and pulled out 7 cc's of fluid to give him some relief. Then they reset his shunt to let more fluid out.

Within 30 minutes he looked so much better,

They did admit him anyway, to keep an eye on it so, that's where we stand today. We were finally in a room and done with all the questions and so on at about two this morning. He's still sleeping and I'm working on coffee.

Thank you to everyone for the prayers.

Also, thank you for the kind messages...it really means a lot to me, not to be judged or hated and looked down on. I'm still trying to find that center line of being happy and not feeling guilty and being miserable because I think I should.

Have a beautiful day everyone. :)

So glad to hear it was an easy fix. I have a young friend from our school who has two shunts (Spina Bifida), and the first indication he has that he has a shunt issue is always back pain. Cheers to a quick recovery!
