Hey girls! Things with my shunt keep getting worse and worse. I had to have a spinal tap done on Friday. It was scheduled for 11am. Well, it didn't start until 3 of course. My opening pressure was 360. My shunt is set at 100. This means my shunt isn't working properly if at all. I am now waiting on my dr to call me with a game plan as to what we are gonna do to remedy this situation. I have a feeling it is gonna be a full revision (which is replacement). In a way I want it and in a way I don't. I want it because I am tired of the headaches and I don't want it because ya know...its brain surgery again...make sense?

Oh yeah...and some more as to where I have been...My ex husbands step grandaughter was sent home from school a week ago Friday with a stomach virus, they had Dani and the other child the entire weekend and instead of letting us come get Dani, kept Dani in it...Dani gets sent home from school Wednesday with it...is out Thursday and stays with my mom Friday while I have my spinal tap and is still under the weather all weekend...I get sick Sunday night and finally start feeling better last night....I just hope Sean manages to dodge it.

Thank you JMC1988 for my siggy!
