Posting from Comer Hospital

Carson did great this morning with the Lumbar puncture and the MRV (MRI). It took a while to get the LP (4 tries) but finally they got it in and her pressure was 13. They tried to lower her to 6, but had a hard time - the CSF wanted to be a 8. After about 30 minutes it FINALLY went down to 6.5. We will have to see how she does at 6.5.

We won't know any info on the MRV until our appointment with Frim tomorrow. Keeping our fingers crossed that all goes well. We aren't out of the woods yet.

Getting here yesterday was a disaster. SNOW, SNOW, and more SNOW! It took us 8 hours to get here. It normally takes 3.5 hours. It stunk. There is supposed to be more ice and snow coming so it maybe Saturday before we even make it home. I guess we will have to wait and see what the weather brings.

We are here in the play room waiting for a HUGE surprise at 4pm. I will wait to report on that until tonight.

Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers today.
