My Son had surgery today for a broken collarbone

My son broke his collarbone while riding his bike about 2 weeks ago. It was not healing properly, so today they screwed and wired all the pieces together in the right way so it will heal.

My son is off to college and takes care of himself, but today was parents day. We drove to Berkeley and took him to the surgery, talked with him, waited for the surgery, drove him home, got him all set with pain meds and cold packs.

My son is a typical wired college student. On the way to surgery he was entertaining us with the text messages he was receiving. The tone of the messages was pretty much .. be cool .. don’t die … and text me back when all is done.

We had to take pictures before we got him up from the recovery room bed, and they were immediately posted on the Internet.

On the way home, he answered text messages, updated his blog with the latest information including pictures, and updated his Facebook profile.
