It occurs to me...

That I should write something about the big events this week so everyone doesn't get confused.

So last July/August Ike was hospitalized for 3 days due to Secondary Concussion Syndrome. (See here and here) While he was there they found a Chiari 1 Malformation in the base of his brain. He is going in for surgery Wednesday morning to correct it. We are choosing to do this surgery while he is still asymptomatic. If it was truly urgent, it would have been done last fall. So, he's fine now. He should be fine afterwards. And no, it won't help his Autism at all. Autism is all forebrain problems (the location of those concussions last summer which is why he wigged out so badly afterwards)...this surgery is at the base of the skull/top of the spine. He'll be in the hospital for 3-4 days. Prayers, good wishes, and positive energy on Wednesday and the few days afterwards are definitely welcomed.
