I spent the day with Eric--he is totally amazing! He looks great, is walking around, eating normally, flirting with the nurses....and conniving to get an early discharge. We think that may happen tomorrow. Unfortunately, because the hospital is SO popular, Eric had to stay in ICU even though he doesn't need intensive care. However, he followed the ICU rules of no cell phones or computers which is why he has been incommunicado. Hopefully tomorrow he will be reunited with his gadgets and I can turn this blog back over to him.
On the medical front, Dr. Yu says that the post-op MRI looked really great, so that is very good news. He also regaled us with stories of the embarrassing things Eric said when they woke him up during surgery to probe his brain. And what were they? Well, you'll have to ask Eric--all I can say is that apparently physicists are quite erudite even under anesthesia.
Still no celebrity visits, but one nurse told Eric that as far as she was concerned, he was a star. So clearly the surgery didn't affect his charm factor.
