Update From Dr. Chugani

Dr. Chugani came out at 1:45EST and said things are still going very well. The back is almost done and then they will move to the front. Dr. Sood estimates that they will be able to read the motor cortex around 4 or 5... Wow that is a long time!!! My heart drops any time a doctor comes through the door. The phone call is so much safer because you know that the nurse is going to say something generic like "things are going fine".

On a lighter note. I have received further confirmation that people in general are socially retarded. I grabbed a sandwich at Subway about an hour ago and the lady asking me what kind of cheese I wanted says, and I quote "Why so serious? Cheer up, its Friday!". Does she realize that she works in a hospital? My initial reaction was to say "Yes, big plans for the weekend. I plan on starting rehab with my daughter that is getting half her brain removed." I resisted and smiled instead.

Glad everything is still going well/as planned.

People just don't think sometimes! Totally clueless. Obviously anyone on edge in a hospital has good reason. Duh!

Hoping for good news with the next update!

Unfortunately, one needn't travel far to confirm that observation. And you, Brandon, are quite the observant one. Hence, your good poker analogy. We're all out here sending our support.

Thank you for not making me feel like such a bitter b***tch when I mentally strangle the stupid people I encounter!

Hoping everything keeps moving smoothly!
