Cynthia had been there from the beginning, talking to me before the embolization procedure, and then coming by to check on me. I had talked to her about whether she wanted to be a neurologist, and she was actually studying to be a neurosurgeon under Dr. Mark Shaffrey. I was envious of her obvious brilliance, but she was also very kind. I had kind of stereotyped people like her and was wrong. I was discovering I had been wrong about a lot of my opinions and thoughts. This whole experience learned me!
