It may be shunt time
Doctors told me today that Avery's ventricles are getting bigger and that next week they might look into placing the shunt. She will have another ultrasound on her head on monday, to see if there are any changes. I was really hoping that Avery would be able to come home next week, but its not looking that way. She is still having trouble with her breathing, which may be due to the swelling in her head. So bummed!!!! I'm not sure how much longer we can afford to make this trip. The hospital is a 45 minutes away and gas prices are not getting cheaper.
