He came through OK, folks
An update, direct from Jake:
"Hey there...surgery went fine, still in pain in back but lrg feels great. have wireless setup in room so I'm sort of funtional, cant type very well, but wanted to lrt u know I was fine...just sleepy."
Not bad, Mr. Ortman. Not sure what your "lrg" is but glad it feels great;-) I missed his IM of that, so I e-mailed a "drat" to him, and he responded, in part:
"My pain medication is knocking me out pretty good ... I'm basically just going to put on a DVD and fall asleep :-)"
Wireless computer and DVD - in a HOSPITAL room? Goodness, I guess St. Charles has gotten pretty fancy (or Jake has some pull around there - heh heh;-) (Update: Whoops, that's right, this was outpatient stuff, right? So he's home? Then that makes more sense;-)
Anyway, keep those positive vibes coming his way, cuz I'm sure as the pain medication is turned down... he'll be feelin' it big time;-/

Glad the surgery went well. Hope your recovery is the same. Take care...

I know Jake was scheduled for outpatient, but that was before he was going under general instead of local. Still, I know of people who have had general as an outpatient....just seems wrong to me. Thanks for blogging Barney. Been thinking of Jake lots.

Glad to here Jake is OK. Not only that but I notice that either Jake or his alter ego posted a comment on my blog - thanks! It makes me feel pretty special when you take the time to visit even when you are recovering.
