RECOVERY: Evan At Home
Ev is recovering from hip arthroscopy. I'm not going to go into detail about this, but the situation, at its most superficial--or so I think--requires the hovering round and general assistance of various family members; much TV-watching--including Food Challenge, Prototype This, Seinfeld, School of Rock, 30 Rock, Fringe, House, Time Warp, and Everybody Hates Chris; and card game, gameboard, and computer activities.
The second most popular entertainment concerns food. What Evan and everyone else are going to eat three times a day. Then there's the pain pill issue: staying on top of them...wondering when the last time was he took one.
Evan's doing well; the incisions look good and are healing well. There's just the problem of getting the feeling back in his left foot; a consequence of wearing tight "boots" during surgery to facilitate traction and create a space between the joints big enough to slip the arthroscope through.
