A/Professor Williams promised me me that we would have fun during the surgery, and many have asked me for the funny side.
To be honest, I can't remember most of the jokes, but the banter in The Theatre and general mood was a positive one of a team that got along well.
THEATRE STAFF; You have the "B" team today; yesterday we had the "A" team in here.
By the way, "B" is for "Best", "A" is for "Average", but don't tell them that!
MR DANKS (surgeon); The only word you don't want to hear me say, is "OOPS!"
One of the exercises used to see improvement is to (pretend) to play the piano. The neurologist is looking for the size of the fine finger movements.
And so the best joke comes from Meyer Harari, the 91 year old father of one of my oldest and best friends, Lynda Ajzner;
PATIENT; "Doctor, doctor, will I be able to play the piano after brain surgery?
DOCTOR; "Of course you will."
PATIENT; "Great, because I can't play it now!"
