Gage and I are chilling out at home after a long stressful day yesterday. We had been watching Gage's soft spot getting full since Thursday or Friday. By Saturday we were concerned and by Sunday we were sure we were looking at surgery #6. Tony was off Monday anyway, so that was good. I called the spina bifida clinic Monday morning. Since it wasn't a clinic day we were told to take him to the ER, so that's what we did. We had to wait just about all day, but Gage had a CT and x-rays and all is well!!! Sometime during the day the shunt apparently released and his head is now back to normal. He was such a good boy all day yesterday and didn't even cry when they strapped him in for the CT. I think he smiled at everyone he saw, and even seemed to think the x-rays were funny. We're sorry all of you were in the dark, but we didn't want to worry anyone if there was nothing to worry about.
After we got the good news, we went to eat with a good friend, which we all quite enjoyed and them came home to crash...only Gage had other plans. No full night's sleep for the Finchers. He wouldn't go to bed and then kept waking up every hour or less. I finally got in bed with him in the guest room and he slept soundly the rest of the night...STINKER! I will win this sleep battle. I just don't have my battle plan nailed down yet!
Oh, one more thing- Gage figured out the Johnny Jump-up! It's so funny! When we got it, I wasn't even sure he would be able to use his legs, and now he's jumping! YAY!
