So last Thursday Beckett had an MRI to make sure the shunt is still working properly after the revision in December. No sedation. :) Quick and painless visit. Trip to visit a favorite NICU nurse. All was great!
We went for a visit on Wednesday with Dr. Moriarty for the MRI results. I'm not gonna lie, I was quite nervous, but had a good feeling. My feeling was right...awesome brain without fluid!!!!!
High five with Daddy!
I am so happy that I have these pictures...
If you are new the the MRI world, the white is fluid. As you can see, the revision was needed for sure! Look at how his brain has changed in just a few months also. All those learning wrinkles!!!! Dr. Moriarty couldn't believe my camera wasn't getting good pictures, so he tried it out...ha!
Dr. Moriarty was so excited about the amazing results. We had a great conversation. I feel so unbelievably blessed. We also discovered that Beckett's shunt is programmable. Therefore, the MRI last week "adjusted" his shunt. They reprogrammed it while we were at the office. It took only a few minutes. We are very excited because this could minimize the chances for another revision, depending on the amount of fluid. Below is a picture of the magnetic device used to reprogram it.
SB moms---are your kiddo's shunts programmable or fixed (regular ol' shunt as Dr. Moriarty put it:)?
PRAISE GOD for desired results.
