This Thursday I will go into the hospital one more time at 7 AM to get a lumbar shunt put in my lower spine (lumbar, right?). This should relieve the swelling at the back of my head and allow my eye sight to return to normal. The procedure is short (1 hour) and I should be released from the hospital on the 31st (in time to enjoy tick or treaters). Then we get to see how the recovery goes as far as eyes and balance. As far as I am concerned this is my last hurtle. Thanks for listening.
