Blue Sky in a Rainy Day
Today was Clay's rescheduled MRI. The news is good--no growth in the tumor, and appropriately sized ventricles, which indicates the shunt is working properly. Clay's surgeon met us in the recovery room and said that she has not had a patient have such a hard time with recovery from a shunt implant as Clay, but all indications are that he is headed in the right direction. He is far too thin right now, but after he woke up from the MRI he started eating and barely stopped until bedtime. The MRI wing at Children's has been renovated and the ceilings in the recovery room now have stained glass inserts of a blue sky with puffy clouds and cherry blossom trees in bloom. A nice scene for Clay to wake up to, and for JD and me the first blue sky we have seen in some time.
