we had her appt at 9:40 this morning. and then an U/S at 2:30.
when i got there i started crying before he even came into the room bc i was so afraid of them having to place a shunt in her head. he talked to me and said the reason they are concerned is bc instead of her head growing on a curve (according to the charts) its just going straight up. so he sent me for the u/s so they could know more.
after sitting at the hospital all day long we FINALLY got back there at 3:30. she wasnt having it though. lol she didnt like that thing on her head! anyways. the radiologist came in there and said that the ventricles looked fine but the fluid surrounding her brain was more then the last time.
between the neurologist & the radiologist, they have said that its either one of two conditions:
1) she just has a big head & theres some extra space so it had to fill w/ fluid or
2) her head is growing to accomedate the extra fluid
she (radiologist) said its a hard one to diagnose so he'll (the neurologist) call me tomorrow but said he doesnt think shes going to need surgery!
