We took Nicholas to his pediatrician today. There is some swelling around his shunt and we want to make sure there isn't a problem. His doctor thought that if he is retaining fluids some could have collected at the shunt. She said that if his lungs sounded crackly and if his oxygen saturation was low she would give him a dose of Lasix to see if that helped. His lungs sounded fine and he was satting at 93%. So he didn't need any Lasix. He isn't showing any signs of infection or shunt failure so we need to have the neurosurgeon check it out. We are going to see him on Friday. It could be nothing or if there is something wrong with his shunt he will need to have it fixed. So in the mean time if the swelling gets worse we have to call the neurosurgeon and if he gets a fever or continuous vomiting we have to call the pediatrician.
Other than that everything has been good. He is really getting louder and he is cooing a lot. I can already see a big difference in him being at home. I took a video of him in his swing but I can't put it on the computer because our hard drive is full. I will work on that later and try to clear up some space for it.
