Good News/Bad News
Alex had his head ultrasound today to check for hydrocephalus. The good news is that he doesn't have it, the bad news is that he has more cerebral spinal fluid in between his skull and brain then he should have. This could cause too much pressure on the brain. We don't really know what this means or what is causing it at this point in time and Dr. Google isn't helping me at all. Every time I try to search for it all I get is hydrocephalus themed results. My pediatrician was out of the office today but I spoke with a nurse and she will be setting up an appointment tomorrow for a consultation with a pediatric neurosurgeon. I asked for one from Boston Children's Hospital. So now we wait. I hate waiting.
