Madison was doing well, then not so great again. She hasn’t been eating or drinking, but overnight she started drinking again. She woke up at 12:30 or so for some juice and potty time, but otherwise got some sleep. She started coughing and sneezing overnight, so she may have caught a cold just to pile things on. She woke up thirsty at around 6, and drank a juice box. At about 8, however, she threw up again (first time since before the seizure). She fell asleep in the recliner in the room while we were changing her sheets. When she woke up 30 minutes later, she was running a fever of 101.5. She got some Tylenol, and within 20 minutes her fever was back down to 100.
She is going to get another MRI later today, but we’re not sure when. Is her fatigue and nausea due to a shunt malfunction or just a cold? Brain surgery or juice and chicken soup? That’s the question of the day.
