And for over five years, she has been mostly doing fine with this particular shunt and tubing. And her breast cancer seems to be at bay. She has a husband who is very supportive, a dog she dearly loves, and aides and nurses and doctors she schedules responsibly. She is lucky in so many ways, and has stayed out of long term care facilities for most of her life.
The last time I posted about her shunt problems was the time I went to Charlotte, NC to be with her at the Carolinas Medical Center. You can read more posts about her at these links:
Like my SIL Charlotte says, "you don't know what you don't know". And we don't know why or how the time comes for a revision, but it will likely be sooner than later. But it is a concern, of course. Your prayers and concern are appreciated.
Regularly scheduled arts and crafts will resume shortly.
