Today, I've already spoken to two of the techs there.
They told me Orion is doing great, and eating. One of them said he's

He's coming home around 3 this afternoon, and has to
be kept quiet for 7-10 days! No stairs, except slowly going up to
our bedroom at night. So, that means, for the next couple of days,

for a couple of days.
I'll try to sneak down here and post on how
