UPDATE

I took Rylie to the Neurologist yesterday. She looked into her eyes and said that there is still pressure there, because it looked blurry. The Neurologist doesn't have the equipment to really look into the eyes like the Opthamologist does. She only used one of those lights that the pediatrician uses, so she couldn't really tell much. She recommended seeing a Neuro-opthamologist and I told her we already have an appointment scheduled with one for next week. She said great and she knows the doctor we have an appointment with. She said he is the best! So next week we'll see him. The Neurologist increased her medication dosage. Maybe by next week all the swelling will be gone. That's what I'm praying for anyway. Rylie is doing great. She is perfect on the outside, I just don't know what's going on inside. I stopped researching Pseudotumor Cerebri online because it was freaking me out. Since she is not in any pain and still isn't showing any symptoms, I'm happy with that and looking forward to seeing the Neuro-opthamologist next week.

Thanks for the update...what a frustrating thing to have so little info to go on. BUT I'm so glad she's not hurting and is doing well overall!!!
