Thanks to everyone for their concern about TJ. It was nice for both of us to have such good thoughts and prayers behind us today. More for me than for him. He said he wasn’t nervous at all – I told him that’s because I was doing such a good job for both of us. The tooth, which was fused to his jawbone, was able to be successfully sawed free in a couple pieces. Unfortunately, while unconscious he moved his tongue and the underside caught the saw. He has a cut about the size of half a dime which they put 3 sutures in. As it turns out tonight, that’s what is really bothering him this evening. He has no feeling in the tip of his tongue, so we are hoping that that will come back.

Otherwise, he is enjoying his “ice cream” and pudding diet which may be extended due to the tongue incident.
