Well, when I was posting last time Sam was napping and we were getting ready to take him to Urgent Care hoping all the grabbing of his head and crankiness was an ear ache.
It wasn't an ear ache. We had a shunt revision today and it looks like his shunt catheter, which we already knew had shifted, had nearly completely failed and it wasn't draining fluid and pressure effectively.
He should hopefully be discharged tomorrow for a 1-2 week light recovery.
We're told he "beat the odds" because most kids need revisions before this. I don't know why doctors seem to think this is comforting.
And, obviously, I still haven't boxed up that shipment to NGC. 😅🤣 Life just isn't that calm.
I stay busy when I'm stressed though. I don't stay still or idle much. All the laundry is done. All the dishes are clean. Christmas trash is handled, drive way is cleaned up.
Only one parent gets to be with him at the hospital so she gets to come home to a clean place while I care for 4-year old Ben, who comes in to sleep with me because he misses his brother at night in the room they share.
2020 just couldn't go quietly.
