Four Months Post-Op: Screwwww You... Screws.
112 days/16 weeks/four months since the day! How has such an enormous chunk of the year just flown by? I have an unexpected (well at a probability of 10%) update. Not going to lie, this all started just over two weeks ago, but now that I know certain *cough...
