So Dad's surgery went very well yesterday, and the neuroradiologist was "very pleased" with how things turned out. He may be coming home tonight, if all goes well.
Thanks so much for the good thoughts. I really appreciate it.
By the way, I am a real twisted individual, because I've been entertaining thoughts lately of the "wouldn't it be cool if I could date Dad's neuroradiologist?" variety. I mean, think about it, the guy's like, a miracle worker, he's super intelligent, is local, and probably works so much that he doesn't even have a girlfriend yet.
But then again, he's Asian, and I can't get past the "we're probably related" thing. So there goes that idea. Let alone the whole ethics issue.
If the Terri Schiavo case has taught me anything it's this: Get an Advance Directive. In writing.
By the way, "schiavo" in Italian means "slave."
