I’m a little blue today, but for no reason other than the obvious. So far, Charlie seems to have established that he’s stable, and that’s a good thing.
The down side for me is that now nuerology is going after him with a vengence. The blood on his brain is still sitting there–not really an increase, but not re-absorbing either. At this point, this is not a problem, but if it doesn’t re-absorb, he may have to have a surgery to drain it. Surgery is not good–it can be very traumatic for a child as young as Charlie. I’ve said that I’m going to ignore the brain stuff since it’s a mystery even to the experts, but that’s hard to do when they’re jamming it in your face
After speaking with the Dr. about the brain I went in and told Charlie "you prove those bastards wrong!" Right after I said that, he scrunched up his face four times in succession. I decided he’s putting his game face on.
PS: My one-week-old son will be getting his first mp3 player today. We’re going to record lullabyes and our voices on it, so he can hear them even when we’re not at the hospital. Kind of crazy, huh?
