Mr. Gopher had back surgery yesterday to fix a small (small but nasty) problem with his lower back. A bunch of goo was scraped out from around his vertibrae and away from a nerve. It was fairly un-invasive - out-patient treatment. He feels much better, since the pain from the problem is gone; he will need to wait another day or so before the pain from the operation goes away.
Jr.Gopher #1 has informed me that Jr. Gopher #2 "gave me too many germs". He's also informed us that his back hurts and he needs an ice pack like papa.
Jr.Gopher #2 is not sick.
I'm not sick, although I'm tired.
Hopefully this finds all of you hale & hearty
