In hopefully the best save of his life/career, Seve Ballesteros underwent his 3rd surgery in two weeks today to remove a cancerous brain tumor. Reports from LaPaz Hospital in Madrid, Spain said the 51 year old's procedure went "better than expected" and the rest of the tumor was removed. The hospital added that he would be "under close observation for 48 hours in the intensive care unit".
This latest move was designed to relieve pressure from Ballesteros' brain and excise the remaining bits of the cancer. This is probably the best outcome anyone expected, although the golf great is still a far cry from being out of danger.
Perhaps Crown Prince Felipe said it best. "Today we remember Seve Ballesteros with special affection and concern," As he himself said, he is playing the game of his life at the moment."
Godspeed Seve !
