Pirooz Kalayeh does so much, and this is the latest. No, not the latest, but the latest for your reading pleasure. This book has been fermenting/percolating/maturing into a sweet smelling bit of brain jam. Eat it with toast. The Whopper Strategies. Your kindle will be happier for it.
Anselm was returned to the Intensive Care Unit on Thursday morning because he woke up a little disoriented and a CAT scan showed that fluid had filled the cavity from which the tumor was removed. The fluid is exerting some pressure on Anselm’s brain, and there was talk of a second surgery to suction it out, but after some discussion the doctors decided to raise his steroid dose to help alleviate swelling around the surgery site and monitor the situation carefully. If all goes well, the excess fluid will gradually dissipate as the swelling subsides. It is now Saturday evening and so far, so good.
