My mother and I slept last night at the Chai Lifeline Apartment, actually getting some decent rest. Musical Daddy said that there were some pain management issues with The Boy during the night. And by "pain management issues" he meant that The Boy spent quite a bit of time in agony.
We have a feeling that this time around with healing will be more complex than recuperation from the last surgery.
He has a new scar, of course, this one running down the center of his stomach. Welcome to the Zipper Club, boy.
