Jim is getting better every day. He’s eating “real” food. If he passes tomorrows swallow test, he’ll be on an unrestricted diet. Yea! He was never a big fan of jello!
He’s having surgery on his back today. Hopefully, it won’t be too many more of them. The wound is very large and very deep. It has to heal from the inside before they will close it for good. They give him a full anesthetic rather than a local. They feel there’s too much to do and it’s easier on the docs as well as easier on Jim. Then it’s on to rehab. It will probably be at the same hospital–which, while a bit of a drive, is really good. He will get four hours a day instead of the standard two. I’ll let you know when it happens. Till then, thank you everyone for your caring, praying and support. You are amazing.
