Please Pray...

I talked to Trey a little after 10 tonight and they were about to leave Clyde and head back here to Cooks. I didn't get details; they were busy. All I got was that there is something wrong with Cannon's little head. Likely, something having to do with the shunt. Please pray for Trey, Ali, Cannon, and Ali's mom as they drive up here tonight. They are going straight to the hospital. I will update when I know more. Thank you!

I am Ali's cousin and I was at their house last night when it all happened.

Cannon's soft spot in his head was bulging and so they called the dr. The dr told them to come to the hospital so they could check it out. Also a little bit before that, they were changing him and Ali noticed that his back (incision) looked irritated and so she also knew to point that out while they were therein Dallas.

It looks like they are going to have to make an incision in his chest and pull the out the shunt tube having it drain on the outside while he gets IV antibiotics for the infection.

They are thinking they are looking at a week or two in the hospital.
