Shunt Blockage

Little Violet has been in hospital since Friday after not being well at all since Wednesday. She has been vomiting,  extremely lethargic and not eating. She has had lots of testing and her CT scan today showed that her shunt is blocked. She is having surgery early tomorrow morning to help fix this. Her ICP is understandably raised. Will try to keep you updated how she goes.

Thanks for the update. Are you in Sydney? We will be at the hospital Tuesday for bloods - would love a quick catch up if you're around Xx

Hi there, I don't know you but I just found your blog. I'm so sorry to hear about your little girl - She sounds very strong, like she can conquer anything! I hope her healing is going well. In case you need any information, resources, or want to connect to the CP community, one of my favorite websites is CP Family Network. A lot of people there and on their facebook page will know exactly what you're going through, and that can be more comforting than anything else. Anyway, hope you find it helpful... good luck to you and your family!
