So here is what has happened to Justin's dad, as near as I understand it:
1. Had brain surgery. Went as well as could be expected, no apparent side effects that were quite possible.
2. Back in Ithaca, he started leaking spinal fluid, quickly returned to the hospital in NYC for observation and possible surgery to plug up the leak.
3. While in the hospital, got meningitis, which has delayed whatever leak-plugging surgery might or might not happen.
None of this is life-threatening or even, as far as I know, likely to cause long-term issues, but it sucks for both his dad, and his mom, who's been with him in NYC the whole time. (The younger kids are under the supervision of Whitney and Weath for the time being and are back in school now.)
