Chad's surgery went well today. They were able to fix the tendon although it was a huge tear, much larger than they thought. It took 45 minutes longer than normal because of the size of the tear. They also we not able to do the block to his arm....after about 12 pokes they gave up....so he woke up from surgery in severe pain. They medicated him pretty well and then he would not fully wake up. We ended up at the hospital 3 more hours than anticipated. I got him home and he went to sleep right away and has been sleeping since. He is on some potent pain meds and a morphine pump. The next several weeks are going to be pretty tough for him!
