ABC Nightline - Baby Has Half of His Brain Removed to Treat Seizures

While watching ABC news this evening (Thursday, December 30, 2010) the news anchor gave some brief information about a baby that had half of his brain removed to treat seizures. And at the end of this one news story the news anchor mentioned that more of this story would be on Nightline this evening. This is the reason why I wanted to create this one discussion.

While I was in the process of collecting more information about this online, it appears that part of this news story is already available, in video. Just as a heads up, it appears the video start with a commercial advertisement, which is typical. Here's a link to the website where I found this news story and video.

For those of you who do get a chance to watch the video on television, please come back to this discussion and reply with your feedback about that video.
