Surgery for Liam's hydrocephalus is booked for Wednesday, Nov 12. The MRI did not show improvement in the increasing ventricle size caused by the blockage. It really sucks to have to choose between the risk of brain surgery or delay the surgery and potentially cause Liam brain damage from the long term pressure in his brain. The surgery is called laproscopic 3rd ventriculostomy. They poke a hole in the third ventricle to allow the csf to flow properly to relieve the pressure. This surgery is minor compared to the other surgeries Liam had. He should only be admitted for 1 or 2 nights. Being 6 yo now, Liam is much more aware (compared to the 5 surgeries he had at age 3 & 4), and he is pretty angry about it. F u cancer.
