I found out yesterday that my shunt is the problem and they will have to put in a new one (with a new tube). Monday they will find the edges of the old one in my head and hopefully will do the surgery Wednesday. It will take two doctors --- one on my head and one on my chest with the tube.
I will have to stay at the hospital one, maybe two nights. I'll also have to miss work for a week. (Only 3 left at school, so that's a mess)
It will be nice, though, to be able to stay awake and see again! My brain doesn't have much room left----
