Well he's had his new shunt in for 2mths and it has stuffed up again.Two weeks ago he started with the headaches and vomiting again and rushed him to hospital where they admitted him and did an urgent CT scan and contacted Brisbane Neurosurgeons and they said to keep an eye on him in hospital.While in hospital he started going downhill fast and had a dellusional episode and back and neck pain and they thought it was Meningitis but of course all tests came back clear.They did another CT Scan and sent it to Brisbane and they decided to fly him down on the medical plane with two doctors and a nurse.We got to Brisbane and he went straight to ICU and the next morning he was worse and not holding his own.They wanted to do another CT Scan but tapped the shunt at the valve and couldn't get any fluid out so they said he is going straight to surgery and found that his resivours had broken away from the shunt and they had to change half the shunt including the valve.So now his shunt works and the pressure has affected his left eye and so his has a squint and turned in eye which they said will correct itself hopefully.So he is finally home and has to go back in three weeks for a check up and will see what happens then.So I wish my hospital will listen to me when I say it is his shunt as they never do and is very frustrating.He is doing well no for the time being.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
