I haven't written much about Paolo A. Bolognese, M.D. Associate Director of the Chiari Institute. He was the other neurosurgeon in Michel's surgery. He is from Italy and is "the leading worldwide expert in the field of laser Doppler flowmetry applied to neurosurgery, and the top European figure in the field of neurosurgical intraoperative ultrasound." He came to the USA to work with Dr. Milhorat. I have met Dr. Bolognese a couple of times and he is a very nice man. You really get a sense from him that he cares about his patients.

It's been awhile since I brought everyone up to date. Michel did not get back to work as scheduled on the 14th. Her lymph nodes have been swollen for two months so the doctor decided that she had to stay out of work another month. In fact, the doctor sent Michel to see an Oncologist. I guess he decided we didn't have enough to worry about. Anyway, Michel will see him next week. Meanwhile she gets worn out very easily and has been taking a lot of naps. Her spirits are pretty good considering all she has been through. She is upstairs watching a special about Saturday Night Live and I can hear her laughing.
Michel had her worker's comp hearing and everyone agreed that she should be getting her money but we still haven't received a penny. It was another piece of paper work that had to be filled out by the doctor before they will pay us the back money and start paying her again. Next hearing is on St. Patrick's Day.
I do have some good things to talk about but I'll save them for another blog entry.
