Pre-Op Testing

Did my pre-op testing this morning at Baptist Hospital East. I am now set for surgery next Wednesday, 9:00 a.m. at BHE. Dr. Steven Reiss will be performing the surgery.

The surgery entails drilling a hole in my skull (behind my right ear) and removing a piece of my brain for testing. The testing part is two-fold. They will look at it and see if they see anything (pathology) which will be quick. They will also send it to the lab to culture, which will take 6 weeks.

I feel that there's some sort of funny comment I could make about the whole "drilling a hole in your brain thing" but after three punmpkinhead ales and a long day, nothing is coming to mind. Maybe it's leaked out of a hole in my head...

P.S. This "Rick" is actually Hilary...I'm just using his computer. Oh and by the way, we'll both be down in October, so you can meet him.
