Monday Chandlers Dr ordered a CT Scan to make sure there was no bleeding or blockage in his brain causing the Hydrocephalus. When the the radiologist came back with his report he said there was no obstructions and he felt that it was not caused from hypoxia or lack of oxygen at birth, but that Chandler had meningitis in utero. So the Dr then ordered a lumbar stick to draw cerebral spinal fluid and test for any signs of infection. The sugar levels were elevated which would indicate infection. This would also explain my prematured labor. At this point the infection was cleared up because of all the antibiotics he had been on since birth. I am not sure what this all means concerning the hydrocephalus but he should have another head ultrasound soon and maybe we will have some more answers.
