Many thanks to all of you who left such nice comments yesterday. My son's surgery went well and by the time we got home he was up and walking around on crutches like nothing happened. Basically, it all amounted to nothing but a flesh wound.
I'm sure it'll be sore for a bit and he's got about 6 weeks until the holes in the bones fill in, but he's well on his way to a full recovery.
Thanks again everyone.
I'll be back on Monday unless I can sneak a post in before then. Everyone have a very Merry Christmas this year.
