Update! And not just Shoebox. Cody is fine. His surgery was on Thursday; he ended up getting five pins put in his foot, but they're the kind that dissolve (wtf, dissolving pins? What's next - dissolving stitches? Wait, they have those already... heh.) Anyway, he's got to stay off of his foot for the next two weeks (at the minimum) and then he'll have a cast for about the next 8 weeks. Nothing like starting school on crutches!
Also, they've started moving him out of his room and into Corey's, as I will be home in a mere 15 days and will need a place to sleep. My family rocks, I can't wait to see them again!
And a book recommendation: The Distant Land of My Father, by Bo Caldwell. I finished it this morning and it is amazing.
I'm off to an "international party" this afternoon and then to Erlebnisnacht, so have a lovely Saturday and stay cool!
