Back At The ER

We took Nicholas back to the hospital this morning. They did a CT and x-ray. His lateral ventricle looks good but his fourth ventricle is enlarged. The fourth ventricle is where his second shunt was that was clamped off then removed last Friday. They are having a hard time finding a vein for an IV so someone from the NICU is coming down to try. We are waiting on his actual neurosurgeon to come talk to us. He isn't on call today but is there so sometime between now and next week we might see his doctor. He will most likely have to get the second shunt put back in the fourth ventricle.

I just got an email from MUSC. His new cochlear implant date is June 9.
