He was released yesterday around 6pm...thank goodness. He is doing much better. He is not taking any pain meds and he seems to be getting back to himself. He has been placed on a full liquid diet again for a week...until we see the surgeon next week. This was a very scary event and I am so glad it is over. Now I need to get back to the reality that I have not purchased any gifts for Christmas yet and it is in a week!!!
