Colin, hope all went well. Let us know when you need help with the WC's. We're just a hop, skip and a jump down the road.

And everyone likes to see Loren skip...

Me too!

I forgot to ask Colin how long he would have to stay in the hospital (or even if he had to stay, but I'd assume at least overnight)? Does anyone know? Does anyone know what hospital he's using?

Don't know. He spoke with me about it when he was in the shop recently but I didn't ask for details. I would imagine there will be quite a bit of PT after the fact, but not sure how long they'll keep him. Nowadays there seems to be a revolving door on hospitals.

Best on recovery, Colin.

It seems to be that insurance companies aren't footing the bill for additional days in the hospital. My aunt just went through blood vessel replacement in both legs and then an amputation above the knee... she got sent home maybe a week early! But that's Arizona, not so great healthcare there...

Just spoke with Colin. He sounds great, but he's under heavy pain meds. I didn't believe he was out of sorts until he told me he called me (when I actually called him). We got a chuckle out of that one!

He's at Scottish Rite. He will stay tonight and possibly tomorrow night, depending on if he can keep food down. Right now he's still throwing up everything and he has to be able to hold it down before he will be released.

He said he was up and actually took a few steps using parallel bars in the hospital today. He said he felt great, surgery went well and didn't take a full two hours.

He seems very upbeat and even had visitors when I called, so I didn't talk long.

We need to smuggle some Ippolito's in to him, I bet he keeps that down.

I just got off the phone with Colin too He asked me for Loren's number (I only had Linda's number - hope you don't mind I shared it with him...)

He sounds great - he's feeling good and has started PT. He doesn't have internet at home he's cruised the site a bit on his phone - but he wanted me to let folks know he's doing just fine!

Thanks be to God for favors received

Jenn

He called me today and I gave him Loren's number. Sounded very upbeat on the phone, which I was glad to hear!
