Charlie is home! I finally heard from the surgeon last evening around 9 PM. Everything had gone well, even though there was some post-op bleeding. We have been given 3 pages of discharge instructions to follow.
Charlie slept all day, had no interest in dinner, or anything else for that matter. But I did manage to get him to take his medications wrapped in cheese to help with the pain and discomfort he's no doubt having.
But Charlie is home, and that's all that matters. Let the healing begin!
