A major operation…

14.01.2014 – A close family member has gone into hospital today for a major brain operation.

This will be his 7th or 8th similar operation and each time, it is a life or death situation. The problem he has is a brain tumor that is constantly growing within the crevices of his brain. The operations require the surgeon to effectively scrape back these tumors – a delicate activity requiring a very steady hand, because it is so easy to damage the brain tissue and ultimately damage one of the major faculties.

He went in at 14:15 and he is still in theatre. Over 9 hours so far!

These surgeons are just amazing!
