Cathy spoke with the neurosurgeon today. He asked for permission to change meds to keep Daniel from having vasospasms. Vasospasms are a narrowing of blood vessels leading to a decrease in blood supply. The new agent/medicine should increase blood flow through the brain. The doctor will check to see if this new agent is working after 24 hours (the Doppler test measures how fast blood flows through the brain). If vasospasms are still present, Daniel will have to go through another procedure called "stenting" to insert a tube to increase the flow of blood. Stenting would also allow the doctor to insert a "balloon" into the blood vessels to keep them open (angioplasty) and prevent the risk of stroke.
Please continue hoping and praying for Daniel.
