Default Ben's next embolization

Quick update

Ben's been scheduled for round 3 on June 1st in New York for the AVF in his brain.

We're all actually hoping that embolization won't be needed this time. If the angiogram shows that he has remained stable, we may just get out of there in one day!! He still has a few feeder arteries open, but in December they were still too small for the catheter to get at.

If embolization is needed this time, Dr. Berenstein will proceed with it on the same day rather than going back for another day of anesthesia.
