Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

Splendid. Now let the nit-picking begin.  :lol:

Does anyone else find it funny that OldGit is now listed as the creator of this thread?

Git being MASTER of language
Wears an ermine robe on DAYs
Ye a bit funny now you mention
Still grumpy over losing Grumpy
Steve Reason's still got his.
Certainty disturbs me

I like the term for MORTALLY OFFENDED. I won't ever say it three times fast, though.  :unsure:

I'm amused by the sugar sandwich one.  I'll never remember how to say the danish part.

I take it that the prognosis was not good?

Are you looking for a whole sentence, a short phrase or a single word? 

"The (original) prognosis did not indicate (the possibility of) such a felicitous/fortunate/positive outcome."   ?

Context needed agsin. And you could cast aspertions on those who made the prognosis if not carefull.

Despite the poor original prognosis the patient made a good (satisfactory)  recovery.
If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.

Remember, your inability to grasp science is not a valid argument against it.

It's for a medical report for someone who suffered cerebral hypoxia in their infancy and their recovery apparently exceeded expectations.

Despite the poor original prognosis the patient made a good (satisfactory)  recovery.
   

That's good, thanks Tank!
