Update on my BIL and my Daughter

April 13th, 2021 at 04:58 am

BIL has been improving every day.  Yesterday they were able to take out the feeding tube and today he was able to sit up and talk and eat.  They have moved him out of ICU.  He will still have to stay in the hospital, but there is no more talk of him not surviving.

On the 13th at 1:30 p.m. PDT my daughter has a lumbar puncture.  That's tomorrow, but the time stamp here is never right so putting the real date.  If you can keep her in your prayers that would be great.  Hopefully we will get the answers we need regarding the excess spinal fluid on the brain.  If it is what they think it is, it is treatable with medication.  If it is not we are back to square one.

    Do they suspect Psuedotumor Cerebri?

    Rachel--no, it's idiopathic intercranial hypertension that they suspect. It is too much cerebral spinal fluid on the brain.
