My uncle's out of surgery now - the doc says it went well. Though my uncle's speech is a bit slurred, that's probably due to the anesthesia. Even with the aftereffects, he keeps trying to get out of bed and walk about without the nurses so the family is yelling at him to take it easy since he just got done with having his head opened up and tinkered with. But nurses say he's in pretty good condition to be able to move around like that despite some pain he's experiencing. They estimate they'll need to keep him in the hospital for maybe a week while they drain his surgical wound and monitor any signs of infection or other problems.

It's been a long day. I didn't sleep easy last night and none of our alarm clocks went off so we ended up 30 minutes late for his first appointment. But, fortunately, there were no other patients there that early so we were still able to have him do the tests and surgery pretty much on schedule. Still, overall stressful. We'll probably stay with him for a few more hours until he has his dinner and then head home. My mom and I are do tired, we'll probably crash when we get back as soon as our heads hit the pillow. It's still only mid-day but I'm ready for sleep!

Thank you! He was progressing so well, the hospital let him come home on Wednesday. He still has to take it easy and have a nurse come to check on him, but he's happy to be out of the hospital. =)
