My mother just called. My brother just came out of surgery and the doctor said that everything went well, but that when they got in there were more breaks than they had initially thought. He is going to have to stay in the hospital through the weekend and then he will be in rehab for a couple of weeks. No one has seen him yet as he is still in recovery, but the doctor came out with the report and sounded pretty optimistic about it.
I won't get to see him until next week unfortunately, but I am sure the fewer people bothering him right now the better.
