Ben. Thank you. It's been nice meeting you. One of the positives of a messy situation. Having spoken with you, my brother, and the staff of the Hermelin Tumor Team has been an eye opening experience. I never quite realized until two Thursday's ago how many limitiations I had been placing on the human experience and our ability to find solutions to the problems we encounter. I have been given, what I feel, is a rare glimpse of human ingenuity that so often gets lost in the din of our daily lives. Currently, I hope to hold this perspective as strongly as I can. It is my goal to shed as much light on the successes that such fine individuals as yourself have been setting me up for all along. If there are any specifics to which I can be helpful, please let me know immediately. On the contrary, please let me know if it is helpful to shut my yapper at any time. According to my wife, and some handy brain and behavior resources, some of my expressive "filters" have been affected, at least temporarily. The changes seem small to me so far. My wife has noticed some, but I expect some adjustments will definitely take place. Overall, the news is good. Relatively small and welcome opportunity costs are associated with my improved outlook. It all seems to relate back to economics in some way. Unlimited wants versus limited resources. Or, as the Stones said it so well, "You can't always get what you want...but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need." Gettying a bit sappy. Brain filter back on. Thank you.
