Mom is officially not crazy! Benjamin’s head size yesterday measured significantly larger than his previous measurement and he is officially above all the percentage lines >95 percent. An ultrasound today showed “large” ventricles in the brain, which means Benjamin’s brain (for a reason unknown at this time) is not draining the fluid as it should and this causes his head to grow larger since the skull’s growth plates are not fused yet.
Due to the rapid increase in size, Benjamin was admitted to the PICU at Ochsner. His head grew over a centimeter since yesterday. Sounds like some scary stuff, but I believe all of this can be corrected. We will continue to remain positive until we are given reason to be otherwise. Every now and then I can work a little smile out of him even though he must feel pretty yucky. Please keep Benjamin in your prayers.
