He had an X-ray earlier this evening that showed the position of the shunt. It truly does reach into the very center of his head. The valve sits under his scalp, and the drainage tubing traces down his neck before looping three times within his abdominal region. He will have a fast MRI tomorrow to set a baseline for the size of his ventricles.
We expect to be discharged from the hospital tomorrow afternoon after a final consultation with his surgeon.
