Dr Roberson update - 10:55am

Manny is doing well. This whole time Dr Lewin has been prepping the ear skin flap and working with the little piece of cartilage that Manny does have on his little ear - this will try to be used for his earlobe. I guess this part takes a long time and is a delicate process. She is also grafting his upper arm area to use for his ear since he did not have much scalp available with his hairline lower near his ear. Dr Roberson plans to drill the hole in his head in about 30 minutes - he worded it much more nicely, but that is how I translate it. The membrane is close to the canal area so Dr Roberson must be very careful.
I did leave for a few minutes to get some soup/pudding for Manny tonight at Walgreens. Other than that, we have a little corner in the waiting room where we've set up shop for the morning/afternoon/evening.
Eli was able to write me an email today from school. He got to have lunch with the principal today. V cool.
