For those of you who don't know, which should be almost everybody since this happened very quickly, Mike got a lap band put in on Thursday. These have had great success in helping people with diabetes, and we are hoping that eventually he will be able to quit insulin all together. He's doing good, just feels like he got beat up in the belly area, he should be able to go back to work soon. Here is the beautiful photo. I know one hole was for the camera, one was for the tools, one for the sucker and one to put the lap band in through, but I don't know what the fifth hole was for. Maybe Jim can shed a little light on that?
However, on another note, he was walking a few weeks ago and heard (and felt) a *pop* He walked on it for a couple of days before telling me that it hurt worse then when he broke it last January. So we went and got it x-ray'd. They told us that it was definatly broken, but that they needed to compare it to the post surgery x-rays to see if it was any different. Well, we got a phone call last week telling us that it is broken and he is going back to see the surgeon on Tuesday. I'm going to have to assume that they are going to take the screw out and do something else, and hopefully soon so it doesn't get any worse. We'll see.
