The hardware is out

Micro-elbeno had his final op today to take out the internal hardware which has been holding his jaw together for the last few months.

Mrs Elbeno got up at an infeasibly early hour to take him to the hospital, where they arrived at 5.30am. She called me just after 8am to tell me he’d just been taken into the OR. The procedure took a little under 2 hours and he was out in recovery and doing well.

The plan was originally that they would keep him in overnight but they had no room, so he was sent home this evening and he’s now sleeping in his own bed again. He’s a bit swollen under the cheeks and stitched and taped up there, but overall doing great. In a few weeks he’ll be right as ninepence.
