Keeping up with Cyborg Richard Thompson's treatment

Cartoonist Nick Galifianakis is one of Richard's best and oldest friends and is with him today during the surgery. Nick's posting updates on Facebook about Richard's treatment today:
I try and keep this a "cartoons only" site. And since my pal, Richard Thompson, one of the giants in my field, is having brain surgery today, I'll stray a tiny bit to periodically update folks on his condition.
As of a few minutes ago:
Head shaved, halo attached, been through MRI, unconscious, surgeon about to scrub in.
The doctor agreed to let him draw a cartoon during surgery while they're testing out the placement of the electrodes. I told Richard to think of something worthy of posterity, as it will certainly be historic.
It will be posted on his blog ASAP, of course.
He has not yet put a hankie on his head and has told the brain specialist that his "brain hurts."
More later....
