Before noon, he is transfered to Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego. Daniel survives a second procedure to alleviate pressure in his head. Doctor cannot operate on aneurysm until swelling in his brain goes down. Surgery for aneurysm is scheduled for Saturday morning.
Friday, May 1: Daniel rests and hears from friends and family. Doctor says Daniel's swelling has gone down or that there is less pressure so surgery will continue as planned.
