One Surgery Down…

Ben made it through his surgery well.  He had a difficult intubation, so they are keeping us at MCH overnight.  They installed the halo and also did an anchor on his lumbar spine.  He isn’t talking much, but gives a thumbs-up when asked how he is.  Tonight will be all about comfort and pain management.  Both his doctor and his anesthesiologist say he’s one tough cookie!
