Wow. He Wasn't Joking

Dr. B's assistant called early yesterday evening with amazing news. She had in hand an email sent by the other Dr. B., the surgeon who'd done the actual aneurism clipping. Seems he'd had time to study the results of E's post-operative angiogram, the brain mapping done the day after the surgery to check placement of both aneurism clips.

His findings and recommendation: The angiogram looks very good. I see no reason why E can't wait five years before a follow-up.

Five years? Wow. I guess he wasn't joking when he found P and I in the waiting room after surgery, and said with a smile that he'd given E another 100,000 miles.

Appetite for writing: ravenous.

"Very good" sounds very spectacular. And, for that matter, so does "ravenous."
