Well we are home safe and sound. Dr. R said the tear was bigger than he had expected, but the stitches are in place. We even have pictures. Kind of cool to see what your kid looks like inside. When Z1 had to have an emergency appendectomy we got pictures of that also. Not sure why anyone would want pictures of their appendix, but he has them. Dr. R said he's going to have a talk with A1. No more 90 lb dumb bells for him. A1's only about 5'8", but he's very muscular. This is a picture of their band. He's the shortest one. The tallest one with the glasses is my 13 year old step son. The one on the right is my 16 year old step son. The one with the number 22 on his shirt is the drummer. A1 takes after my side of the family. My dad's only an inch taller than me and I'm only 5'3". Anyway, he's doing OK. The 48 hour nerve block is wearing off already, so he's started on the Darvocets. Thank you for all your prayers. I'm sure I'm going to need the patience of a saint come Sunday when the real pain is supposed to hit... Thank you Lord for DARVOCETS.

Glad to hear all is well. A1 sure looks a lot like you! Will keep him and you in my prayers. I never realized your dad is 5'4". He always seemed like a big guy to me. The image, I guess. That and the fact that I'm not quite 5'2". LOL

Hope the healing process goes well. Boys are pretty tough until something like this and then they become our babies again. Good luck, hope things smoothly.
