Matty update  
They took Matty off the Adavan long enough to bring him out of the coma - he knew who he was! And recognized him mom and my mom. Could answer yes / no questions. And apparently fought like a demon for awhile. But that's good too.

Surgery tomorrow to repair the 5 breaks in his leg, including fixing where the bones sheared off completely right above his ankle. That boy is going to have enough silverware to set off the detectors at the airport. Doesn't look like they are going to have to operate to fix the orbital socket breaks - they have set well enough.

They will keep him in the coma for another week or so to allow his torn trachea (and leg) to heal up some more - they did a real good job stealing some rib cartilage for the repair from under his arm instead of having to crack his chest.

Now, if the rest of my day would just get easier...

That should be fun. I had a roommate who had a metal plate in his head and pins in both arms, and he used to set off the detectors. Watching them go over him with the wand was pretty amusing.

wow. Holy shit. I'd cast Cure3 if I knew how.
