Mom, dad and I went to St Louis for a checkup. We left yesterday and spent the night at a hotel (thanks to moms free night certificate that she won at work). We went out to eat at Texas Roadhouse with some friends of mom and dads (Jay and his girlfriend) when we got up there. They have really good rolls. I ate a whole roll so when it was time to eat my other food, I was full. It was a fun time. Afterwards, we headed back to the hotel. I got ready for bed. But I was too excited. I got to sleep in a bed all by myself. Mom and dad turned out the lights about 10:00. And I just laid in bed babbling away. I talked all night long. Mom and dad was in their own bed trying to sleep but I was too busy talking. I also thought what I had to say was funny, because in the middle of my conversation with myself, I would start laughing. Mom and dad thought I was funny too because I heard them laughing. They kept asking me what was so funny I tried to tell them the story again but they didn't understand. It was about midnight before I passed out.
About my doctor's appointment, they took another picture of my head. And then I got to see the doctor. He poked at my head and measured it and asked how I was doing. I said great. Not really, because I was exhausted from talking all night long. Instead, mom spoke up for me. He said everything looked great. My shunt is draining like it is supposed too. The only thing is my brain really hasn't expanded any from last year. That's okay because I am still learning things with the brain that I have.
