As many of you have seen on facebook we took Cannon to the ER last night. He had been sleeping a lot yesterday, and was also whiny and very clingy. We just didn't feel right. So we called the pediatrician on call and he told us to bring him in and have a CT scan done. By 1 am we were going home, after being told that everything looked good. The doctor wanted us to follow up with Cannon's pedi today, so we did so. Cannon continued to be groggy this morning and a little cranky. We went and saw Dr. Wiley and Cannon seemed to be okay while we were there. The CT scan report said that Cannon had hydrocephalus, which we already knew that. But Cannon has never had a scan done here, so there was nothing to compare it to. He wanted us to send a copy of it to Dr. Roberts (neurosurgeon at Cook). So we took it and overnighted it. Hopefully they will get it tomorrow morning and call us will news that his shunt truly is okay. While Cannon was sleeping in my lap a little bit ago I felt his head, and his soft spot felt really good. I don't think that he has any increased fluid, so I am pretty sure everything is okay.
Dr. Wiley also had us cath Cannon while we were there and he did an urinalysis. There were WBCs in it, meaning he has some infection. This is likely the reason he has been acting/feeling the way he has the last couple of days.
Please continue to pray that we do get a good report from Ft. Worth. And also that Cannon continues to do so well with his eye patch.
God Bless!
