First things first; I genuinely appreciate the comments and emails I received yesterday. Sincerely, thank you! It was great to get the mail-tone on the phone, because I could check the mobile and take a few seconds to relax.
It helped to feel connected to the world outside the hospital.
The important news is my father is now the Miracle Man. I didn't mention it yesterday, because it was bad bad bad.
Like Not Brent. Not just bad beans, but bad news.
The Miracle Man had an aneurism at the left anterior pons, basically under the Cerebellum. That's a bleeder, folks, and when the thing goes it's a coin flip whether you drop dead on the spot. Even after, the prognosis isn't good.
In our case, the major issue is the area isn't that accessible to surgery, which naturally has complications of its own. We had one of the few Radiologists in the country who could perform the coiling procedure during the angiogram. Dr. Gerstle was amazing; we all felt lucky to have him.
I won't go into detail that's already out there in glorious detail, HERE and HERE.
So... imagine the best news, news too good to hope for. That's what we got.
He's still in pain and in the ICU, but he'll be home in a few weeks. The prognosis is excellent... and unexpected.
This was bad - about as bad as it can be for a trip to the ER. I needed a few outlets, so thanks for that.
For better or worse, here's the updated Storm Raven.
