Isn't he cute in his Star Wars getup? Seriously, though, there was neck damage that could only be repaired with surgery. Afterwards, he spent a few months wearing a brace. And now there is a lot of metal in there-and he's looks a lot cuter from behind without the brace!
And coming out of my Nyquil stupor, I have realized that the titles to this week's blog posts have said "countdown" with the days in the title actually counting "up." So we will just drop the sequence part (grin) and be thankful for doctors and medicine!
