Life has a way of lifting you up in the most exciting times and tear you down in some of the most horrific times. Some say it’s whatever road you choose to follow. Whether good or bad, YOU choose! I think that God somehow, someway saw fit that He chose me for this specific unique life with my boys.
Today has been another “ok” day. Brent is so ready to get back in the swing of things with going to school and doing his routine. He loves a schedule and if it gets off track, he does not like it. He is thriving and I am so happy for him that he is still fighting his disability He is one tough teenager!
I am numb. I don’t have any words of wisdom or encouragement for myself or to give anyone this very minute. My brain is trying to stay positive but in my heart I know that another battle is about to begin. I know God will be with me through this. There is no doubt about that. I am just scared. We received some bad news and I am having a hard time taking it all in.
X-linked hydrocephalus (L1 syndrome)
**September is Hydrocephalus Awareness month**
Hydrocephalus is referred to as water on the brain. The water is called cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), a clear liquid that is produced in the 4 ventricles (cavities) of the brain.
My boys were diagnosed with Hydrocephalus at birth.
Congenital hydrocephalus accounts for approximately 50% of all forms of hydrocephalus.
It has been a full day at the Emergency Room at the Children’s Hospital. I do not understand why things happen the way that they do but there is a reason of some sort for it. I am looking for answers. I want to know why my child is hurting and no one can fix this problem.
