Hey it's John posting for Amy again, for a quick update the fluid under her scalp is still building up. After a few tests they have determined that the area of fluid collection is not communicating with the shunt. They also believe the shunt tip they just put in is clogged and not draining at all. So now she is undergoing a second operation to put in a second shunt and try to fix the other one. She was taken in to the OR at 2:00pm and they started the procedure at about 3:00pm.

They waited till the last minute to tell us we need to get out of the room and go back downstairs to ICU and wait. Still have a private room but having to pick everything up and move so quickly was a huge pain.
I will keep everyone up to date as more news comes.
