Another Shunt Revision

Monday, June 21, 2010

Well, here's a redundant story...


Cayman is back in the hospital.

Late afternoon on Sunday Cayman woke up from her nap just not acting like her usual rested self. Then she vomited. Within seconds we threw stuff in the vehicle and out the door we went to the local E.R.

They transported us by ambulance to the U of M hospital.

We spent the night in their E.R. until about 4:30 a.m. when Cayman was admitted into the PICU.

At 11 a.m. she went into surgery.

She still has a VP shunt. Yippee! That's a very good thing! But she is back to a programmable shunt now.

Since surgery...

She has eaten some.

Drank a little.

Played peek-a-boo a few times.

And has slept a lot.

If all continues as planned, we'll be going home tomorrow.

Poor little Cayman.

Lorelai would totally say that this is 'not fair'! (she is quick to say when things are not fair)

Heal quickly Cayman!
