Surgery Number Nine

Addison was admitted into the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) Wednesday. About 2:30 p.m. Addy woke up from her nap very irritable and lethargic. We called the Neurosurgeon on call at Children's Memorial who told us to bring Addy in immediately. Luckily, Dr. Bowman - Addison's usual Neurosurgeon was working. After a ton of blood work and a CT scan, it was determined that Addy would have emergency surgery to determine if she was having a shunt malfunction. Unfortunately, her labs came back that her Potassium was a bit low so surgery has been rescheduled until this morning so the doctors are able to get her Potassium back to where they like it. Please keep baby girl in your thoughts. We all know she's a trooper but can always use the extra love! I'll keep everyone posted.
