    Logan is out of the hospital and at his Mammaw's house. Turned the corner on Wednesday after his midday nap. Finally started eating, sat up 4 times that day and walked down a long hall Thursday morning. Friday had to wait for the docs because when they were making rounds, he walked by them. The Dr asked him where he was going and he told him he was going to get coffee. Surgery correction was measured by his doc to be 21% post operation!
