All right so we have to call the hospital today @ 5 am to find out what time they plan to do Rich's surgery, which I'm still confused as to what all they are going to do. I guess it's possible that they might not do the surgery today at least that what they told my dad. So as soon as I know something you all will know something.
Rich's surgery will be today @ Noon they plan to go in and put screws in his cheeks and depending on how bad the fractures are they may have to go into his hip to remove some bone to put in his cheeks. They are also going to wire his jaw shut which I don't get how they can do that since he's on the respirator but dad's going to find out how that will work.
Well, they canceled the surgery deciding it would be best to wait a few days so they probably will do it Mon. or Tues. He's doing a little better he was able to see how many fingers the doc was holding up, and he squeezed Dad's hand. After a little while though he started to get a little combative trying to pull the breathing tube out which is pretty common.
