I just received a call from Ed Thoman (Brian's father), the 15 1/2
hour operation yesterday was a complete success. Of course the family
is elated and wishes to express their gratitude to the rp community
for all of their concern and outpouring of help. A special thank you
to Steve Deak (Hasbro Corp), Jim Rollins (SMS), Marc McAlistar & Reed
Williams (Cyberform) and Kevin Robertson (AARK). You all really made
a difference in someone's life yesterday, and I hope to have the
pleasure of meeting you all at the conference next week.

   The skull model was received by the surgeon on Monday 2/3 during a scheduled
   pre-op meeting and was to be reviewed with a second surgeon on 2/4. The
   patient's father reported the surgeon was very impressed with the model
   detail. I believe the model gave the surgeon greater understanding of the CT
   images for increased confidence in what to
   expect during the 12-hour facial reconstruction surgery.
   Surgery is scheduled for 2/11/97 in Lowell, Massachusetts, USA. Your skull
   model will provide a validation of the first model, especially since your
   model will be reviewed by the radiologist at Cyberform before delivery to the
   surgical team.

      I'll keep everyone informed about their progress.
