And the plot thickens …

13 Jan

Again, Dad didn’t really have a great day yesterday. Mom is completely worn out. And the doctor passed along to Mom through the nurses that he IS going to remove the shunt. The shunt that made a tremendous difference for Dad for FOUR YEARS up until October when it was adjusted. And I am stunned.

My sister Elaine, who has a BILLION questions about all of this, is talking to the neurosurgeon today. From Tampa. We need answers, and if there is one thing I’ve noticed on this entire journey, these doctors are not offering a lot of data. Communication is NOT their strong point.
I am heading up there. And hoping to get some answers. And give Mom some relief. In all of this, I worry about her, too.
