John Stabb Out Of Surgery

(punkbands) John Stabb's wife Mika has Posted an update on the Government Issue frontman's facial reconstruction surgery. She commented: The surgery itself took about 4 hours, though we were there all day. It was great to get that time to let each step of the process sink in. I would've wanted to watch the operation, but I didn't press the idea after I first brought it up last fri. w/ Dr. S. (I love that kind of stuff & also didn't relish leaving john's side.

This is the first crisis of our still-nascent marriage, you know! ~an emotional journey, indeed. I must say, I think we're both handling it w/ panache, don'tcha think? ). John is now the proud owner of some 5 or 6 titanium metal plates shoring up his "zygomatic tripod" bones (around the eye orbit) and his upper jaw, both of which had been sliding around; a screw (I think) under his right eye; a wide, leathery splint over his nose, Silence Of The Lambs-style; and temporary braces readjusting his teeth. The jaw alignment came out "better than expected": so far, they have opted against wiring his jaw shut, although we will reevaluate later this week. He will need to wear clueless-old-guy huge bug eye sunglasses to protect the incision along his right eyebrow, destined to leave a wicked-cool war wound. All in all, a kickass operation
