This will be short and sweet as I don't feel up to writing nor expressing much emotion about it today.
Someone said that they did not like Blogs because they make families look perfect and always happy. Well my blog defiantly does not fall under that category.
Anyway, Dr. Sweetman called us in to let us know that Keegan's EEG came back normal. That was great news, no seizures. She however let us know that his MRI had not come back the same. He has what is called Chiari (sounds like kee-o-ree?) Malformation.
This will be a very rough explaination of this, but we were not given alot to go off of. She wants us to wait till we see the surgeon......At the base of the brain there are 2 things that look like tonsils which go into the spinal cord/brain stem/whatever. They are supposed to be less then 5 mm and Keegan's are 12mm. This creates pressure and the side effects are vomiting (duh), choking (aduh), migraines and tightness in the extremities (duh again). Sorry, but I can't help but wonder why he was never checked for this before, it explains so much. Anywho, we are waiting to hear from a Neurosurgeon, who will decide whether or not Keegan will undergo surgery.
I'm sure that you can pretty much figure out how I am feeling about all of this. If not, I'll leave it to your imagination.
Thank you all for the prayers in our behalf. Please keep them up and please add a little emphasis on our poor boy. I want so much for him to have at least 6 months of a normal child's life. He is my hero and although as of late he is scared very easily, he always puts on a brave face for his wimpy mom.
We Love You Son!
