I got the call from the doc today that she promised me. She had been in an emergency surgery, hence the late call. Anyway, she said she researched a bit about the new kind of pacemaker, but it was just slightly more detailed than what I knew yesterday. She did say that she wants to consult her partner neurosurgeon since her partner has more expertise in this region of the brain and she would call again on Monday. So, now you know as much as I. :\
It's me, Kevin, but with a brain tumor. Disclaimer: I have a very dry and twisted sense of humor. This is a scary situation. The jokes ("tumor humor") could be a little dark from time to time. I intend to keep this rather interesting for you, but if I get a "how could you SAY that?!?" response from you, know it's just, well, I hesitate to use "gallows" humor, but I don't have better phrase for it. Enjoy, and thanks for your support through this time.
