It’s “Go” Time
Tomorrow morning, Thursday, March 21, is “Go” time for the deep brain stimulation (DBS) device! We meet with my neurologist and a MedTronic representative at 9am to turn on the device. We may have good luck on a tuning right off the bat. We may have to adjust the settings over a series of visits.
I’m becoming increasingly impressed with the skills of the physicians and the technology behind the device. There are some crazy smart people in the world and I’m fortunate to have this opportunity.
This time feels pivotal and I thought it timely to capture an updated head/shoulder pictures. My friend Julie (Calotype Photography) took the following shots.
In anticipation of the improvements with movement, I’ve begun painting a series of abstracts using only my left hand. I’m affectionately referring to them as the Wonky Series. There have been 10 created after surgery but before switching “on” and there will be 10 more beginning some time tomorrow. Below are two of the first 10 images:
More to come tomorrow. I can’t wait to share the good news.
