He is learning the hard way

He decided he wanted to cut back on the pain medication and 'tough it out'. He tried twice resulting in two very bad headaches. His Mom thinks he has learned his lesson and will take the medicine on schedule.

Apparently he is eating very well which appears to be an improvement. Chewing had been painful in the first few days after surgery.

The plan is to have the staples removed from his incision on Thursday, but serious ice storms are predicted for early in the week. That could delay things if roads are too bad to travel on.

The two ongoing concerns are still fine-motor control in his right hand (which should improve) and diagnosis of the tumor.
