I had a scheduled doctors appointment in St Louis today. So mom, dad and I headed up to St Louis this morning. I got to see Dr. Smyth, who is my neurosurgeon to make sure my shunt is working a-okay. I have graduated to only seeing him once a year, so it has been awhile since I have seen him. He was pretty impressed by what I can do. He asked me how I was doing and if I have had any problems or signs of shunt malfunction. Mom told him I have occasional vomiting and irritability but no patterns of it actually being the shunt. We weren't for sure if the doc was going to want a CT scan done and after he saw me and talked to me, he decided I didn't need one and didn't want to expose me to the radiation if I didn't need it. So we were headed back home. Which is a record. Most of my appointments involve getting a scan done and extra waiting, but not today. It was all good.
Since I had my doctors appointment I did not go to school, which means I messed up my perfect attendence. But I am sure I was going to miss eventually.
I got to see Santa the other night. I did really good although the picture didn't turn out the best. But I was a big boy and didn't cry unlike the boy in front of me. I can't wait til Christmas :)
