No alcohol? WHAT DID THEY USE FOR ANESTHESIA??? I was given a couple of (full) glasses of whiskey and a .62 caliber musket ball to bite on! What sort of cheap-o surgeons do they have in Texas?

The surgeon said to Pat that there wasn't any cartilage left so "no wonder he hurt!" Now I'll wear a splint until the 15th and then a cast for six weeks. The bone has to fuse around the screw in my thumb bones.
