Well, that was awful.
John’s surgery was way more intense than we anticipated. The surgery itself was over 3 hours long and he has 40 stitches in his mouth. He has been in a lot of pain (obviously), but has been able to stop taking his prescription pain medicine. He’s on a lot of advil, tylenol, and antibiotics.
Slowly, he’s is getting better. It’s been a lot harder on him (and the rest of us) than we realized. On the plus side, we’ve had lots of milkshakes and mac and cheese.
Thanks for everyone checking in with us. It is so nice to know how many people are wishing him well.
