    I'm sure the book is better than the movie, but this gives a taste of it. When men were men, or, just "that's the way it was" and accepted the risk? Scary stuff.

    update

    Alex Zanardi has undergone a new surgery, performed by the professionals of the maxillofacial and neurosurgery, aimed at cranio-facial reconstruction and stabilization of the areas affected by the trauma reported following the accident on 19 June.

    The operation carried out is part of the interventions planned by the multidisciplinary team that takes care of the athlete to allow any continuation of the therapeutic path.

    "The fractures were complex," explains Professor Paolo Gennaro, director of the UOC Maxillofacial Surgery of the Aou Senese, adding that "this required careful programming that made use of computerized technologies, digital and three-dimensional, made to measure for the patient

    The complexity of the case was rather singular, even if - concludes Professor Gennaro - it is a type of fracture that we routinely face in our center.

    After the operation, which lasted about 5 hours, Alex Zanardi was again hospitalized in the intensive care unit where he remains sedated and mechanically ventilated: his conditions remain stable from the cardio-respiratory and metabolic point of view, serious from the.neurological point of view, the prognosis remains confidential.

    He's got a long way back but if anyone can do it, its Zanardi.

    Here's wishing him a full and complete recovery as soon as possible.

    I read the story as well and first wanted to post on here as a sign of good news. And it is in a way. But when you read the details it's really not very encouraging. He is another MS fate, slightly less worse, but...
