Dispatch from Casa la Brilliant: Superman Returns
Posted by Jill | 4:31 AM
I don't mean to turn this blog into a personal diary, but Mr. Brilliant's medical saga is starting to have more twists and turns than the roller coaster at Coney Island. Sometime during the night on Saturday, Mr. B. suffered a stroke. I am heading out now to Abercrombie and Neurosurgery Medical Center, where I hope Mr. B. is now, after Dr. Chess Club, a.k.a. a real-life Superman, and his real life Angel of Mercy, managed to get him sprung him from Klown Kar Hospital here in NJ, where an impaired but still with us on Sunday Mr. B. turned into an unresponsive person whacked out on three seizure meds with aspiration pneumonia. As of 9:30 last night he had still not arrived, but I'm assuming that if he didn't, they'd have called me.

I'll write more about this saga later, probably with somewhat less humor than last time, but right now I'm hoping that whoever takes out his breathing tube when they bring him out of sedation is under the expert eye of Spicoli the Anesthesiologist so Mr. B. doesn't freak out. At least I got to sleep a few hours last night without wailing. That might have woken the neighbors.

You and Mr. B are in my thoughts (I'd say and in my prayers, but that is against my non-religion), and I wish you both all the best during this difficult and challenging time.

Look forward to reading some good news from your home front.

Hang in there, both of you. Mr B (and you, his soulmate, Mrs B) have put up an admirable battle in the past several months.

Take care,
Vancouver, BC
