After a four hour surgery, Patrick is recovering at home. His herniated disc in his lower back was pretty awful (according the doctor, but put into Sara terms). And his pain/numbness should go away substantially. This past weekend was spent playing nurse and taking care of my boy. He'll be off week for 3-4 weeks, which is definitely needed. Let's just say the three inch long, 20 stapled wound on his lower back (not to mention the cut off vertebrae) needs time to heal. Thank you for all of y'alls thoughts and concerns. It was a pretty stressful/scary two days.
Weekend update to come soon.
