HE'S OUT and OKAY! I just heard from the big guy himself! He's talking and actually making sense, LOL. Say's they didn't have to put in as much bone graft as they'd thought. The surgeon said he was very happy. He doesn't know how many screws got put in yet but from the X-rays it was (and I quote), "a LOT." Says to tell you all that the prayers n' good thoughts worked and thanks SO much. He'll be in touch himself of course when he gets out.
