Slackin'


This weekend was really busy, especially since Andrew, Tom, and Drew came up for Thursday and Friday nights; a shit show that left me hung over and weak for the rest of the weekend, which is partly why I haven't posted in like 5 days. Anyway, I'm gonna try to get back into the everyday routine with this:
On March 24th, An Italian doctor completed a brain operation despite having a HEART ATTACK after realizing his patient would never recover if he stopped the surgery. Surgeon Claudio Vitale started feeling pains in his chest half way through the operation and, instead of doing what any normal person would do (writh in agony on the floor) refused to stop despite his team's urging and the pain worsening. After finishing the surgery, the doctor had an angioplasty operation to treat his attack. Vitale insists he's not a hero, but that he couldn't leave the patient "at such a delicate moment." Both doctor and patient are recovering. I have always been envious of specialized surgeries who have 7 figure salaries and only do like 4 surgeries a year, but this guy has earned every dollar of his paycheck. Simply unbelievable.
