Surgery Day

I'd say Evan is having surgery tomorrow but I realized it's already tomorrow!

It was a long day!

Evan had brain mapping today which is a crazy process. They hook him up to a machine and stimulate the EEG electrodes that are directly on his brain. The goal is to identify the areas of his brain that control motor function to help Dr. Weiner ID what is safe to remove.

When they did the mapping, the motor area revealed a pretty small area to remove without causing a deficit. Because of this Evan will only have one more surgery. 

Dr. Weiner said its a complicated surgery and called it "black belt neurosurgery" but feels confident about it. Evan has an early OR time and I will update when we have info.
