After a four plus hour wait for a room, we finally got into the neurosurgery wing at the Brigham. Jack came with us while the girls stayed with friends back in NH. He was a real trooper all day although he nearly lost his composure after a while.

So I got my room, a window bed overlooking the Prudential tower downtown, I have an excellent WiFi connection, noiseless headphones, Miles Davis in my ears, plenty of reading material, and I feel like I am in good hands.I will meditate a bit tonight with my healing mp3s and will take the rest of the night easy.

I met with one of Dr. Day’s young doctors who runs the neuro ICU and he was very informative about everything that I will be going through later this week with the surgery and recovery. He told me I was lucky to have Dr. Day perform the surgery since he is the top guy in the division. I am happy about that too.

The doctor was not too concerned about long term residual effects on my left leg post surgery and he said that they might get worse before they get better. As it is right now my left leg is a little weak and tingly from the brain swelling, something that will probably go away after the danger of seizure has subsided.

Settled in, happy for now…
