Update On CT Scan

We have a good news/bad news scenario with the CT scan. Dr. Carson said that every thing looks fine. There is no reason evident why Katya should be having headaches. There is still room for her brain to continue to grow and all looks in order. That is the good news. The bad news is that then we have no clue why she evidently had two weeks of solid headaches, nor why they are evidently gradually getting less and less. However, we will be thankful that it seems they are improving. The last few days she has been very nearly close to her pre-headache self. Even the school is noticing how much better she is seeming again, so we know it's not just our wistful imagination. She's a lot more peaceful and happy, instead of being irritable and falling apart over every little thing.

Thank you to all of you who have been praying for Katya and our family. Your prayers are much appreciated!

I guess you have already had it ruled out, but is it possible that Katya could suffer from migraines?

I understand that given Katya's issues and surgery history, you worry - and rightly so!! - about her headaches. However, many times headaches have no obvious reason. They come and they go, and no one knows why. Let's hope Katya's headaches were of that kind - and that they'll not come back!!

I'm happy to hear that she is almost back to her usual self now. What a relief for her herself and for your whole family and her school!
