Mason is in surgery right this minute getting a VP Shunt put in his brain. He was pretty crabby this morning leading up to surgery because his last meal was right before midnight. As you can see from the picture above he got an IV back to keep him hydrated until he’s allowed to eat again. This is also the last picture of all his beautiful hair. He’ll have at least part of the right side there shaved for surgery. I’m tempted to shave the other side too and give him a spiky mohawk with all his fluffy top…LOL.
I spoke with the neurosurgeon this morning and we decided to go ahead with surgery because the fluid is still in his back, which poses a risk of rupture of his incision from the back surgery, and his head soft spot is getting less soft. I feel peaceful about the surgery, but I was in tears for a few minutes while holding him. He’s just such a little peanut and I can’t imagine someone operating on his tiny head.
I’m off to pray some more!
