Steve is comfortable, his leg is in a humongous bandage, and he has a morphine pump for his refreshment. We watched a little TV and he sipped ice water (no ice chips necessary). Then he got sleepy, and the nurse came in to reposition his leg, so I said goodnight. I'll be back in the morning--I have a doctor's appointment of my own at 7:20 AM and will head over the the hospital after that, probably just in time for his Jello breakfast.
Thanks again for all the support. Dave H. called midway through and gave me just what I needed. And Greg brought a big box of chocolates, which we'll demolish tomorrow after the Jello.
