a. Not do anything if the results were surprisingly good
b. Have shunt surgery (a tube to drain extra fluid from the brain to the abdomen)
c. Have ETV surgery (to drill a hole in the ventricle to drain the extra fluid from the brain)
We carried Evan to a private room where we would spend the evening. He was covered in orange antibacterial soap. He was hooked up to all the same kinds of wires and tubes as the NICU. He slept a lot. He ate a little. He finally opened his eyes early this morning. He started smiling again. He chugged a few bottles. He burped a lot. AND...we're ready to go home! What a day!
Note: We can already see a noticeable size difference in Evan's head. The sutures in the back of his head are now touching and the neurosurgeon said his ventricles have shrunk. Wahoo!
