Hi All,

Well, from the icp monitoring they are now saying that Helen has consistently low pressure!

So at last we have a reason for the bad head pain. Apparently a normal pressure is between something like 5-20 and when Helen was sat in a chair by her bed before, it was reading at -9! So now hopefully something can be done.

Not sure what they will do now, but the NS is going back to discuss with his team what their next move should be. Presumably looking for a leak or something...

Anyway, will keep you posted.

Thanks for all your prayers.
