Sorry to leave you hanging...

We just got home from the hospital. Cannon is doing better. He had surgery this afternoon to relieve the pressure from the shunt. They tested for infection this morning...the meningitis was negative, but his cell count was up. Meaning, there is infection somewhere, but they don't know exactly where. They did surgery this afternoon to "unclog" the shunt, and started him on IV antibiotics. They also placed a catheter in his bladder that will stay for the next few hours/days to give his "equiptment" a break from the in/out every 6 hours, as they felt that he was beginning to get a "sore spot." When we left he had eaten a little from a bottle, and other than being a tad sleep and fussy (can we blame him?!), all was well. He's a strong little boy...such a fighter! Please continue to pray for Trey, Ali, and sweet baby Cannon. I will continue to update when as often as I can!
