MRI results

So we got the MRI results back and there was some good news and some not so good news. The good news is there are no longer any cysts anywhere in his brain. But the not so good news, his lateral two ventricals are looking larger than normal. His neurologist thinks this could be for 1 of 2 reasons: 1. They are swelling from too much fluid, in which case they would probably need to put a shunt in to help drain the fluid or 2. He brain is developing abnormally and they just look larger but that's just how his brain is. We have to see a neurosurgeon in a couple weeks to do more testing and determine what is actually going on. His neurologist does not think its emergent but he does need to be seen soon. And some more not good news, his pituitary gland is still abnormally small. His neurologist was hoping it would grow or change somehow from his first MRI but there has not been any change. She ordered some labs to be drawn and depending on the results we will have to see an endocrinologist as well. Just two more specialists to add to his list of doctors.
We will now more in the next couple of weeks and I will try and update as often as possible.
Also, I need to ask for prayers for our family right now. We are going through a pretty stressful time (for reasons I will talk about another time) and we need all the prayers we can get. Thanks so much for all the support!!
