is doing fine, and we expect he'll make a quick recovery. The surgeons
told us he has a better chance than most because he doesn't smoke or
drink, doesn't have diabetes or any heart conditions, or any other of
those risk factors.
On Wednesday morning he got to have cranberry juice and broth. Not so great; in fact, he got stomach cramps.
then, around lunchtime, he got to eat orange jello! He has refused to
eat orange jello, or any kind of jello, for about 40 years now. But
today he was so excited about that orange jello he gobbled it down like
it was the most exquisite food of his whole life. Which it was, I guess.
And he loved it.
So that's all I wanted to say about perspective. Yeah.
