Turtle with its broken shell is a get well card from Kathy to Julie, who remains in the hospital with a headache from an accumulation of CSF.
Early Saturday morning, it was the desire of the neuro team at the hospital to have her taken over to Denver for surgery, but I pitched that it was not in Julie' best interests to have her transported there, for more than a few good reasons. Julie concurred. So she remained in hospital here over the weekend until a different surgeon was back on duty today who might be willing to take on her challenging case.
Twice over the weekend her shunt was tapped and excess CSF fluid removed, lessening the headache. But nausea and headaches continued.
Now it is time to put on the Full Armour of God and go see what the day brings. Hopefully, some relief for Julie and a surgery to "fix the problem."
Her name is in the prayer book at Immaculate Heart of Mary. If you are a praying person, please remember her in your talks with the Almighty for grace in her time of need. God bless.
