I thought y'all'd like to to know the news on Huggins.  This was e-mailed
to all North Central Texas IPMS members about an hour ago: "John had
surgery at Zale Lipshy University Hospital on Monday. It was a very long
session, lasting 8 hours. There were no major complications, for which we
are all thankful. There was some leakage of spinal fluid, apparently from
the stress of the disk hernia against the spinal cord. It caused the wall
of the spinal cord to thin, allowing the leakage. The doctors are not
concerned, and feel it will heal now that the irritation is gone. John now
has some pins and plates in his back but at least the pain should be a
thing of the past now.

If you wish to talk to John, he is in room 530. Visiting hours are from
8am - 8pm. Zale Lipshy is at 5151 Harry Hines Blvd. It's more or less the
hospital district, with St. Paul, Parkland, Childrens and the Southwest
Medical School all right there with Lipshy. The main phone number for the
hospital is 214-590-3101. John's room number is 214-590-3530."
