I'm pleased to inform everyone that Carson's many appointments have been going well. On Monday we were back at the hospital for a head ultrasound to determine if there has been any swelling in the ventricles of Carson's brain. The radiologists and neurologists found that there has been no change so far when comparing it to Carson's original head ultrasounds taken when he was born. This is great news! We are thrilled that there hasn't been any increasments in the fluid build up. However, this is only the beginning of a long road. Carson will have to repeat these appointments on a weekly basis. After a month or two, if there is still no change, the appointments will occur once a month. After a year of ultrasounds Carson is home free for no shunt surgery if his ultrasounds continue to look good.
We are more and more encouraged with every positive appointment and we feel that we have so much to be thankful for! Even though Carson has turned our lives upside down, he is a blessing and we wouldn't have it any other way.
Coming soon: appointments with orthopedics, urologists, physical therapists and more head ultrasounds. We'll keep ya posted. Thanks for the many prayers!
