Just to let you know, Gary had a 6 hour operation on his hand today at St. Lukes. His hand is competely straightened out and his thumb is where it should be as well. He is wearing a huge cast but the surgeon proclaimed the surgery a complete success. Long road ahead but I am sure he will do fine. Don't know how long it will be before he is on board here but I am willing to bet by tomorrow he will be demanding his computer to log onto TT. Before the surgery I heard he had the nurses and Drs. laughing so much it was hard for them to perform their duties. If all goes well he should be home tomorrow.
