Praise God!! I finally managed to find Righard. He is home from the hospital, has all his stitches out and is breathing without difficulty. It took me more than an hour to get all of his stitches out as he seemed to miss the memo that he was to have them removed shortly after surgery and he had more than 20 of them that were rather grown in. He has a fourteen inch rod in his leg now and is hopefully a more cautious driver. Other than that he is back to normal.
