In and Out Burger

Yesterday was rough and Thomas ended up in the ER for some weird, scattered possible-symptoms.

The nice thing - in a brain cancer way - about Thomas's history is that we sure do speed through the ER. It only took 5 hours to get a CAT scan, a couple consults with a neurosurgeon, a visit with the neuro team pediatric resident (I think - by the way, remind me to send a letter - she had the best bedside manner with Thomas possibly ever), an eval by the opthamologist, and an informative conversation about meds with an ER doc. Five hours is a long time, but trust me, it takes some serious hustling to get all those people and tests organized that quickly.

Good news is, his ventricles are actually a lot less swollen and the things we were seeing were not the result of pressure in the brain. That's good. Bad headaches still stink though. I'm hoping they end soon.

Thanks, Aunt Kaitlin, for the Tater Tots for Tots in Trouble delievery (and the jalapenos on my burger). :)

Hang in there Thomas. Impressive list of things achieved in five hours. On Friday, I only managed one doctor in that time.
