  5. Any update on the emergency surgery? :)

  6. Thanks for asking! I have come up with some rather fun plot threads as a result of all this surgery, something that I never would have thought of had I kept with the original (and lame) plot.

    In fact, it inspired another blog post that I hope to post today or tomorrow.
