Wes had a myeologram last Tuesday, dye injected into spinal fluid, he is tipped upside down, and then a series of scans to look for a leak. There was one questionable area according to the radiologist. With this scan and the fact that Wes’ nose is dripping clear fluid and his eye is watery, Dr. Bowman feels his palate repair needs to wait until another myelogram study. This will clear him of any possibility of a leak. He should have another in 6 to 8 weeks from now. He will also have a MRI of his head and spine. All of scans have been focused in the front of his head, while there are some additional issues at the base of his head. For now we continue to watch him closely for any fevers, which he has been, fever free since we left the hospital.
He is recovering well! I don’t know who was more excited to be home! Amazing how much your kids grow when you are away.
