Catheter! Catheter! Catheter!

My brother couldn’t stop saying it yesterday and he knew every time he did he’d make me squirm. We find out in a few hours if surgery is on the cards for us, and if so…catheters.

If you catch this CBC Manitoba video before they update it, watch for us at 7.20 in, with footage from Katowice, including me being slid into the MRI tube and then a shot called “this is Evan Thornton’s brain” a great bit of script used to introduce  3-second shot of my brain, as seen by the MRI scan in progress.

  2. Hey Even and Duncan,

    Prayers and thoughts are winging their way to you today.

    I look forward to hearing that you both qualified for and have completed the surgery … successfully.
