What do people fear? Negative. I apologize for including your name
incorrectly. I have to tell you that one of the things that got me into
the discussion was something you wrote:

I printed out the subject HIPPOCAMPUS and sat down an read them. When
highlighting information those words interested me. I am not a medical
expert nor do I know all of the medical jargon. I am interested in a part
of my brain that has been removed. I am not the type of patient that is
going to lay back and have 5 brain surgeries this year without trying to
understand what was going on.
Thank you from the kind person who sent me a message thanking me for
sharing. When I saw there was a new message in Hippocampus I expected
something more than information telling me I made a BOO BOO!!
