Spousal unit here again.
After 17 hours and 2 hospitals, Morgan finally was given a lumbar puncture to relieve the pressure.
yes, it is the same disease that gave her the shunt.
And yes, the shunt in question appears to no longer be functioning as advertised.
And since Morgan is pregnant, most of the usual treatments can't happen.
So, at the moment it looks like she is looking at regular spinal taps to relieve the pressure for the next 6 months until the baby arrives, and then they will bring her back in for a new shunt.
I will say this though, while the (in)effeciencies in the hospital systems are very similar down here, they seem to be far more polite about the whole thing.
Anywho, after a very long day (it's now 2:30 am and we started at 7:30 yesterday morning) I am headed for sleep.
Morgan is still in the hospital overnight while they watch her. She will hopefully be back home tomorrow afternoon.
That's all the news that's fit to print...
