Alex's head is still swollen with fluid however the drain has been removed.  They want to watch and observe for a couple of days... naturally, lol!  Probably going to have the shunt put in which is another 2 hour surgery.... GREAT!  Of course nothing is ever easy in my life... always have to take the scenic route on things and enjoy the finer things in life such as my awesome Shand's nurses!!  This too shall pass.... just another bump in our road but we will come out on top..... WE ALWAYS DO! 

Alex is still in great spirits... chippery, full of questions, getting ready to watch RAIN MAN, LOL!  How can the movie Rain Man be 12.99 ???? what the french toast??? I was thinking it would be like a 5.99 movie, lol!  It must be considered a classic!

Please just send up some prayers for the swelling to go down.... maybe we won't need the shunt!  However, if we need it.... I know that things will all fall into place!  ME, ALEX and JC.... we got this!!!
