So far it has been a terrific morning, in spite of Chester's departure and the further delay of surgery.
Sunshine and goodwill.
Two doctors talked with Chico at once about the plan for his upcoming surgeries. A schedule has been laid out. Tomorrow the Plastic Surgery Team will close the wounds on Chico's leg, probably taking skin grafts from the thigh of his relatively uninjured leg. Closing the wounds greatly reduces the risk of infection. The soft tissue of his leg will then need about a week to heal at which point the bones will be operated on, probably a week from Monday. We like having a plan.
After the consultation, Christian and his daughter, Sophia, stopped by briefly bearing cards and gifts from home. It was a sweet, germ-free visit.
Thank you for your ongoing interest.
FYI: Chico would like to add that you should know how good breakfast was. He really liked the french toast.
