Stu Shiffman Update 8/2

Doctors successfully operated on Stu Shiffman today to place a shunt that will help drain excess fluid from his brain. When the surgery was over Stu was returned to Acute Care rather than Intensive Care (where he’d spent the past several days.) His Caring Bridge journal reports that after the prcedure Stu was quiet but more oriented, more able to remember names and current situations — obviously good developments.
