quick update

Just a quick update as I'm tired and am on my way to bed. My mom is staying with us for a couple days so that Tracey and I can get some rest.
Colby is doing OK. It's funny sometimes how things seem to happen for a reason. Colby has surgery scheduled for this coming Monday. Thus far his head has been growing relatively slowly. But I've noticed his head getting bigger lately. Yesterday his head was just over 40 cm's. Tonight I measured it and it's up to 41 cm's. So we're going to keep an eye on it and if things progress, well need to call the neurosurrgeon.
That's about it really. We're going to crash early and get some rest. I'll post updates as we have any news.

Best of luck... our daughter had her ETV just 3 months ago and we were so frightened but relieved that something short of a shunt might be possible. Once we finally decided to go forward, it was almost a relief to know that we were finally going to do something proactive, instead of watching her little head swell like a time bomb.

You don't know us, but our thoughts are with you.
