Today he had surgery to remove the needle that was in his shunt in his head and an opening was made below his breast bone so the surgeon could remove the tubing that carried the fluid from his head to his stomach when he had the shunt.
The main problem he had today was the inability to eat! Now he hasn't wanted to eat all week but today,since he couldn't eat, he was starving! That combined with the apprehension of the surgery caused a headache. He went In after to lunch, the surgery took about 45 minute and after he got out of recovery, he was ready to eat and crack jokes!
He had a good early supper and ate again later as well. The doctor said he could go home tomorrow and I think that we are all ready.
