Hi Scott - Want to apologize for not checking on you for
a while - we sold our house in Kansas City and subsequently
signed an apartment lease. What's the latest with you?

Scott - FYI - My wife is bawling her head off thinking about
what you've gone through compared to what I went through,
which was nothing.

I may not know you personally, but there isn't an ounce of
doubt in me regarding how tough you are. So, my friend,
please don't any of us down, including my wife. You WILL
get through this. If anyone has a clue as to what you're
going through, it's me. Think about the near future, less than
a month from now after, the redux, when you can dress almost
as quick as when you were a kid. The days when you could
a leg over a Harley and kick-start the damn thing, the mornings
when you could shave and shower in less than half an hour.
Remember those days? I know you do. Don't let us, or your
family down, Scott. You're so close. I know how sick you must
be of all this medical crap. But, this procedure really works.
And when it works, man, does it work. The sweet Lord knows
that I'm living proof -

In the meantime, let me know if you would like my phone #, and
if it would help, I'll be available 24/7.

Scott,
Good to know there isn't a higher chance of infection on subsequent DBS surgeries. Excellent comparison of filling holes in your head with repairing drywall or a fender on a car, made me laugh....Hang in.....

Best,
Eric

You do have a top notch hospital and drs! When I had to scratch I used a clean sandwich baggie as a barrier each time. I know you are not supposed to scratch. Also, you may consider taking a green probiotic drink after all the antibiotics. Found in health food places like Whole Foods.
