Our Crazy Life

This is why you don't ever plan on getting off the roller coaster. This is why you don't stay on the mountain top too long.

We are back at St. Jude tonight. Since Thursday Lucy has been complaining of a bad headache, been lethargic and started vomiting. Thankfully we can say we know there is no worry about tumors. However, with her shunt you never know. We knew that our lives would forever be different once Lucy got the shunt. A shunt issue can mimic many other illnesses (and vice versa) and you can never take chances.

So we are here. She's had X-rays and a CT scan. She's gotten a bolis of fluid and we are awaiting results. We are very anxious about a possible shunt malfunction. I feel sick to my stomach. I know they are very common, but they are not common for us! And the worst part is that sweet Lucy is one sick little
girl tonight.

  6. i had my first shunt placed in december 2008 at age 22, and in 24 months had 3 shunt surgeries/revisions, plus an extra stay in the Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit. i'm actually on watch RIGHT NOW for potential shunt issues, having those symptoms again, so will probably end up in the hospital soon too.

    praying for Lucy & your family...

  13. Oh Kate I am so very sorry. This picture of Lucy is breathtaking for so many reasons. Because she is so beautiful. Because she is so fragile. Because she is s very precious and it physically hurts to know she is suffering. I am so very sorry for the suffering for all of you. Praying for her to feel well again. For the shunt to be fine. For a lifetime with your beautiful family of five. God Bless Lucy!
