Philly Trip 2015 Day 8 Surgery Day!

Today is D-Day or in my case S-Day! Surgery Day!

We were up and at the hospital at 6:30 a.m. for the surgery. Once again they lost my paperwork. Luckily I am friends on Facebook with one of my drs and she saw me posting from pre-op and she knew I was in the hospital when no one else could find me. So she sent a crew down to pre-op to get me and bring me up.

Surgery was a success! The Drs were all fantastic and I would like to thank each and every one of them. Dr. Grunwald said I was one of the easiest FOP patients that he had put under. Dr. Crowe was there next to me the entire time he was working on me. Dr Crowe has been there whenever I called and she is an awesome FOP dentist. The oral surgeon was Dr. Diecidue and his crew. There were so many awesome Drs in the room, I can’t even begin to name them all.

They kept me in the hospital overnight and my fantastic wife Lori stayed with me and took care of me all night long. She barely slept a wink because they were constantly coming in and out. I don’t trust regular people to understand how to take care of an FOP patient because they aren’t exposed to them and they don’t know how easy we are to injure.

Best thing is they saved 6 teeth and I made it through with flying colors!
