Today was the big day. Ben, Ryder, and I were at the hospital at 6:30am while Zak was still sleeping at home with Dave. His surgery was at 7:30am and went great. He also woke up from the anesthesia very well so his recovery time was pretty quick. We are now home and he is napping (which I will be doing shortly also). The surgeon said everything went great and he should recovery very well. He has no real restrictions, just whatever seems to hurt he should not do. He is allowed to take a quick 5-minute bath daily for the first week and then can go back to normal baths. Here are a few pictures from today.
