As I said last week, we are anxiously awaiting a call from the International Brain Research Foundation (IBRF). What I didn’t tell everyone is the significance of it. There are two extremely important topics of this call, where one affects the other.
The first is the results of the tests Ryan had performed, including the qualitative EEG and Evoked Response Potential batteries. The second, based on the the results of the first, is whether Ryan will be accepted as a patient. Allow me to make this as fundamental as possible… do they feel Ryan has a shot of recovering at all.
So, we sit here like love-struck teenagers waiting for the phone to ring.
Before anyone says it, I am not a believer in the adage that “no news is good news”. You know what else is good news? Well, good news. Good news IS good news. Whereas no news is just that, no news. To me — and call me crazy — I’d define “no news” as “the absence of information”.
You must see by now, I am a simple man. I’m from that old school way of thinking that “no means no”. Good gracious, I’ve heard it enough to not be mistaken. Still, you can’t argue with my logic.
Unless, that is, you’re my wife…
