Well, the doctor could not find anything wrong with him, and assumes he has something viral. If he continues to run fever for 3 more days, then we will take him back.
BUT she could not check the shunt of course (it's in the back of his head, under the skin…here is a site explaining shunts) and so we will be going to see the neurosurgeon next week. If by next week, the fever has stopped, then that will be a good indication that the shunt is just fine.
So thank you for praying. His fever is still down, and he has been acting like he feels ok. We'll check his temperature again, as the sun goes down. That's when it tends to go back up.
This has been one of those days that all parents of special needs children will understand. There's a problem with my child, but because he can't communicate with us, we have no idea what it is. We visit the doctor, and they can't tell us either. So we wait, and pray that the issue is resolved or that it makes itself known. However, we don't want our child to become more ill. Our only choice is to wait, but that is so difficult.
This is one of those days when that digital readout on Isaac's forehead seems like a really good idea.: )
I'll keep you updated on how he is doing.
Thank you again for praying for us,
