Stu Shiffman Update 7/31

Four days ago Stu was lethargic and not tracking well, so doctors returned him to the intensive care unit. They soon learned the symptoms were caused by fluid buildup in Stu’s brain. Another drain was put in to carry off the fluid, with very good results – he soon became communicative and attentive again. When his overall health permits, they will put in a shunt to facilitate drainage.
