nice chat with the doc today - Nathan has two bleeds and possible PVL flare (http://www.aboutkidshealth.ca/Premat...yID=PI-nh2-04d).
the brain bleeds are very minor, grade 1. doc is not too concerned. he was surprised about them and about the flare (bright spot) on Nathan's head scan, because he is doing so well. he wonders if the radiologist was just covering all of his bases - another scan on Tuesday, docs review on Thursday, and we are meeting with Nathan's doc right afterward.

K,
mama to 4 boys - J (2005), A (2006), N (2008), and Z (2014)

Oh no! I'm terribly sorry. I'm glad it's not as severe as it could be, but any step back is so disheartening. My thoughts are with you and Nathan. Poor little guy.

Eugh, it's terrifying waiting to find out how these things go. it's like you're holding your breath; just waiting out every hour....just keep hanging in there and knowing Nathan loves and is comforted by your presence when you can be there - and when you can't your prayers are reaching him like angels guarding over him.
