Dr. Morgan just came by
and told us that he has 3 surgeries on Monday so he is going to try
to do the permanent shunt tomorrow (Sunday)

There is a plumbing problem somewhere on the floor, so they needed to move a patient on that side of the floor to a new room and they asked us if we would like to move. The new room is quite a bit larger and we have more room for our stuff and visitors.
Each therapist that comes in to work with Jerrod
says they see a lot of improvement each day. His balance is doing so
much better and his speech is improving. We have not seen the ENT
yet, but we are eager to see what they think about the noise in his
ears. Maybe they will look at him and have a great solution.

Carla texted the following message this morning:
"Having a great time on the 6th floor playing xbox and visiting with family and friends."
If you didn't read Jerry's e-mail yesterday, it is likely that Jerrod will have to have the Shunt installed on Monday. We continue to pray the tumor is benign, and for Jerrod's hearing, speech, eyesight, and balance - but we also continue to thank and praise God for his goodness and love!
