I don’t know, I slept through it. (All personnel were very kind and reassuring. Dr. Patel was friendly, calming, and encouraging. Everyone went out of their way to explain all questions, paperwork, and the procedure. It was as peaceful as possible considering the subject. Thank you all for being so patient conscious, or should I say “unconscious”.)
