A bit of a concern.....i
Over the past few hours we have been getting a bit concerned about Levi. His heart rate has been falling significantly when he starts crying. They were thinking at first that it was a reaction to the morphine. Not quite sure about that now. They have started Levi back on his IV fluids thinking that he might be a bit dehydrated. His head seems really sunken in to us. Even the sides of his head are starting to show ridges. The back of his head seems really flat. They are trying to pump more fluids back into him, if that doesn't show some improvement in things within an hour, I think I'm really going to push the issue of his shunt draining too much. He is really having issues swallowing, and we have never had that issue before. This just leads me to think that's its a brain issue since we never had an issue with this before. Plus, its been over four hours since his morphine drip. We are just hoping they will get to the bottom of all of this soon.
