Thanks to all who offered thoughts and prayers during Ben’s surgery today. Everything went well. What was supposed to come out came out; what was supposed to go in went in. Post-surgery involved the usual nausea and sleepiness, but he was able to leave the hospital by 5pm. His throat will hurt for a while, but we’re hoping that the meds will continue to work their magic.
While Sara and I spent the day with Ben, Lucy had a splendid time with her friend Zoe and “Auntie Tash,” who was generous enough to take her for the whole day.
Thanks again, everyone, for the well wishes and concern. We’ve been passing on your messages to Ben.
