Jeffrey is going in for surgery today to have a partial
penectomy. Oh no! Poor Young Jeffrey... But attempts to
get things to stay in place naturally just isn't working

Young Jeffrey's surgery was a

antibiotics. And I have tons of nightcrawlers in the
fridge for him to keep him eating and strong.
