It was good.
Asher's MRI looked really good, which (of course) is VERY good news. The issue is most likely that his shunt is working too well. It's tricky to explain but brain valves like Asher's can have high pressure or low pressure. He seems to be having some low pressure issues. So the spinal fluid is draining out too fast, basically, which makes his head hurt and gives him a belly ache (since the fluid drains through tubing to his tummy).
So. There was a change made to what number his shunt is set on (they can do this from the outside, magnetically) (wow). Now we wait to see if he feels better within a week or so. If not, we'll go back to try something else, but we're hoping this will be all he needed.
Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers. We really do feel them and need them. Thank you.
Now it's time to pretend I'm not an overly exhausted pregnant lady and get something DONE. The papers are piling, the dust bunnies climbing, the inbox is over-flowing and the cupboards are...NOT over-flowing.
You guys are the best...
