Well, according to the docs the surgery went well. They tell us that Kevin's chin looked fantastic before they covered it with all the bandages and whatever else is piled on that thing covering a good portion of his face. One super great thing is that they also did his neck at the same time. They only intended to do his chin, so this is one less reason to have to come back here for more surgery.
They are also talking about doing his eye on Thursday, but I am not so sure about that. Kevin is in a lot of pain and I'm not sure he can handle having this much pain in two different places - one quite sizable. The neck/chin area covers about a 6x4 inch spot. Also, donor sites hurt more than this so we will have that to contend with too.
And now it's lights out for us. I am staying at the hospital with Kev tonight because of the communication barrier, and I actually didn't sleep a wink last night so I am running on empty.
Real quick - Tom - that story was a good read. An all too familiar one, but still a good read. Thanks!
And Tandra - your friends are at the Fisher House in Bethesda, but we are at one of the ones in San Antonio, TX. I wish I could meet with them and console them, but we are half a country away.
And now I am off to bed. I sure hope he feels better tomorrow. And I don't have the heart to tell him he has to go through all of this again on Thursday...
