Good TV: Surgery Saved My Life

A few days ago Rob and I watched the show, Surgery Saved My Life on the Discovery Channel. The show was about a teenager who underwent epilepsy surgery and had a very positive experience--it's been 5 months since his surgery and he's still seizure free. I can't hear enough of these positive stories, but I need a box of tissues while I hear them!

The story was pretty amazing, although the narrator was a little too sensational at a few points. The family is Native American and the mom is a medicine woman. It was fascinating to see the surgeon willingly work with the family to combine two vastly different methods of healing.
