Cracked Open

Ever since seeing the Operation game at Target, Costas has used the term "cracked open" to refer to surgery. He always asks why people get cracked open and if he would ever have to get cracked open. I always told him that people get cracked open when they are very sick. On the way to Tom's surgery, he said, "I don't want to get my arm cracked open or my head, because my brains are in there." Tonight, Tom was cracked opened and the surgeon said that the procedure went well. Hopefully recovery will go well and he will be able to write again soon.
