It seemed only right to make this last sketch right in his room as he rested up from a very emotional few days!
The surgery was VERY successful and Greg was able to feel how it is going to be when the second operation happens on Dec 2. He was able to write his name, draw a circle and hold a cup. Things he has not been able to do with that hand for over 10 years!
He was up and walking in the room 3 hours after surgery!
Greg will have a second surgery on Dec 2 to implant a stimulator device (somewhat like a pacemaker) with a battery that will activate the wire now in his brain.
It is all science-fiction stuff to us!
So many kudos to the staff and doctors and nurses at Shands. They are fantastic!!!
Greg did not feel much pain but is very tired.
Thanks for all the kind messages we have received.
