While waiting for the CT & x-ray results, they accessed his port & hooked him up to some fluids to keep him from dehydrating since he hadn't had much to eat or drink in 2 days that he kept down. He was hungry, but they wouldn't let us feed him until we knew what we were dealing with and the neurosurgeon gave the okay.
The CT scan & x-rays showed the line looked great. CT also showed that the ventricles were much smaller than in January, which means the shunt is doing it's job. They also noticed some fluid in the cyst that they wanted to see if they could drain. They managed to drain 12 mL of fluid from the cyst with no problem. Within minutes, Caleb said his head was feeling better. So, the last test before release was to see if he could keep some food down, & they let us feed him. He kept down all the snacks we fed him as well as the 8 oz of drink & we got released!!
