Tales from my life as a mom of 2 sons and 2 daughters

OK so we were finally allowed to go back to the PICU to see him. He looks like the Michelin Baby at the moment. He is severely swollen because of water retention. They weren’t able to get an IV started so they had to put in a central line in his other femoral artery so that they could give him Lasix (a dieretic) to releave some of the pressure. While he was swollen they noticed that his fontanel (soft spot) was very tense. Which makes them concerned that there was water on his brain or too much pressure on his brain. So they have taken him down for a CT scan of his brain. We figured we’d come update you while we had a moment.

My brain isn’t functioning at the moment... I’ll try and update more when we know something.
