    Hey guys! I just wanted to pop in and let you know Kevin is doing well after his surgery today. After some semi-private room excitement (and by excitement we mean smelly and gross) he is moved to a private room, with an awesome night nurse Brian. He is feeling ok, a little sore at his...

    Guys, Probably wont be on over the next few days as my wife, Jennifer, is having surgery tomorrow. I wont go into details but it is quite serious as she will be under for 4 1/2 hours. If you can, please keep her in mind the next time you pray or think about someone going thru a tough time...

    A while back, I clipped the end of a torp with the intention of smoking it and, over time, I forgot about it. Well, I guess it was jostled around enough that it loosened the wrapper and, while I was examining it, the wrapper came completely unraveled. I heard that you could reattach the wrapper...

    Yesterday I finally managed to get a pic of all the stuff that's arrived here in the last week. It took a half dozen shifts, and despite the fact I thought it'd be too much, it was a very pleasant diversion from looking at the ceiling. :) I should say that my surgery was a 100% complete...

    So to prevent any further delays in my departure for Iraq, I got 3 impacted wisdom teeth taken out today. Put to sleep, they cut pieces of my jaw and gums away, blah blah blah.. Other than some general soreness like I got into a fight at the bar, nothing stands out painwise. Got some pain...

    Seems that he tore the 'ol meniscus. Our doctor got him a consult with an orthopedic surgeon on Wednesday of this week so we can get the surgery scheduled early enough for possible recovery by basketball season. Oh, and a guy pulled out in front of me today and I hit him. Blah blah blah Life...

    . . . and man do I feel so bad for him. He just got home about 30 minutes ago so he is still groggy - and has one of those damn cone things. Was giving both of them a bath yesterday when I noticed this deal on his back leg. So the wife called over and got him an appointment at 12:30 - by 1:30...

    I had a molar extracted today that turned into full blown oral surgery when both roots broke off in the jaw and then there was a massive amount of infection in the bone. The 10 minute procedure turned into an hour of friggin pain. It hurt like hell. I'm advised not to smoke for 5-7 days after...

    He attended a grad party at his best friends house. He was talking to some girl and some punk came up from behind him and sucker punched him in the side of the face. He said he was stunned for a couple minutes and didn't know what happened.... he's not the kind of kid to take a punch and stand...

    Would everyone please keep Jennifer and the rest of us in mind. She is having surgery today (well...right now). We should be here for just a 23 hr. Observation and heading home tommorow. Nothing emergent or questionable, just a routine female thing.

    I have had persistant middle ear infection problems with my right ear for several years. I will be having my third surgery on this ear Wednesday morning. I'm doing well but my wife is a wreck, this will be the first of a series of operations that will hopefully correct all my problems. Any and...
