A lot of our friends have asked, so I thought I should provide a pupdate: Mom's surgery went well. Dad says the titanium plate looks really cool on X-ray. Mom is fine and is home resting on the couch trying to decide between the Olympics and True Blood reruns. She is really playing the sympathy card and is taking full advantage of the situation. (She’s all “honey could you get me this?” and “honey could you get me that?” – and Honey isn’t even here! She's in Australia, for pete's sake!)
But the truly remarkable aspect of all this?
Mom came home with a giant block of cheese on her arm.
Excuse my language, but there’s really no other way to put this – WTF?
