Just a little update for everyone

Yesterday they wired his mouth shut to fix his broken jaw, and moved the respirator from his mouth to his nose.

Today when my dad went to the hospital to check on him and see what's going on (because they don't call when they do anything) he found out they were going to do some tests on his eyes to see if his eyes have healed enough that they could do the rest of the surgery. They did two of the three tests fine but he has to be awake for the third one and every time they tried he'd start fighting.

They did a few little tests asking him to squeeze dad's hand, and then they asked him to hold up one finger he didn't do it at first and then he holds up his middle finger; which my dad & I both got a kick out of. I'm positive it was intentional, because they've done it before and he's held up his index finger.

They just wheeled him into surgery to do the rest of the work on his face and it will last anywhere from 6-8 hours. We should know how he's doing around 7pm one of the nurses is going to give my dad an update.
