What a smile

He is about 3 years old, and to me, his smile is as cute as can be.  His parents brought him in saying he was having a headache.  I was hoping the headache was all he was having, but as I asked more questions, his parents reported that he also was vomiting and having trouble walking.  That combination of symptoms is usually never good, as it often suggests a brain tumor.  We hope that it isn't a tumor and instead is just TB of the brain, but without a CT scan we really can't tell.  I treated him for TB, giving him some steroids to help decrease the swelling, hoping to relief his symptoms, praying he will get better.  Praying he will be able to share that cute little smile with many more in the years ahead.
