We drove up to Portland yesterday because I was worried we were having a shunt malfunction. They did shunt X-rays and a quick-scan MRI. Nothing looked wrong. Her ventricles are large for her age, but smaller than before her shunt placement. Doesn't quite tell me if it's working like it should, but she is perking up today, and getting a new tooth!
So, maybe she was just teething, and *that caused the vomiting, sleepiness, lack of appetite, that I was worried about. Maybe the fullness I see in her soft spot is "normal" even though it seems fuller than it has been. It's not huge. We go back to Portland on Monday to see her neurologist. I suspect she is okay, but I'll keep an eye out for any new signs.
Not sure if I'll ever get used to this.....
