This is going to be a very quick update. Our second to worst fears were confirmed (the worst being infection or rejection of the shunt). The shunt is either malfunctioning or it is very clogged. We are back in ICU and Kevin is having surgery first thing tomorrow morning. They will either replace the shunt completely or they will replace the malfunctioning part if that is possible. The neurosurgeon is wondering if it is a valve on the shunt, but he can't be sure until he goes into Kevin's head.
So keep us in your thoughts for tonight and over the next few days. I will be staying overnight at the hospital with him tonight and there is no internet in ICU, so I will update as soon as I can tomorrow.
And poor Joyce - what a vacation she is having, huh? I did send her and Breezy to a Steelers bar here in Tampa to watch tonight's game though. At least they will have a little bit of fun.
Ok - gotta get back up to the hospital.
First 2 from the Nov kit!
