Hi Mrs. E.
Hows our boy doing? I'm sure he's fine except for maybe a headache from the anistesia. If he's a coffee drinker, give him a little as it really helps w/ the headache if he has one and if they let him have it??
Did they give you any idea when they will let him out? I had a cervical fussion about a year ago and they kept me for 3 days but others have been let out sooner.Well, tell him his other family is praying and rooting for him!!!! Also I'll leave off the big fatguy manhugs for a while!
