Another thing to keep an eye on

When Liam had his original surgery to have the tumour removed, he also had an EVD to drain the fluid buildup from this brain, hydrocephalus. The tumour had restricted the movement of fluid. Within days, the amount of fluid resolved on it's own, with the EVD, so Liam didn't require a permanent shunt, which many kids do need.

Liam has had a higher amount of fluid buildup, but not enough to cause concern. The doctor decided to do a CT scan to see how the fluid level is.

As it turns out, there is more fluid now, although still not an urgent matter, we will be going back to the neurosurgeon to discuss. From what I understand, it will most likely be a "wait and see" type thing, but we will see what they say.
