His Eye Is on the Sparrow

I went to the hospital yesterday, seeing Jim for the first time since Wednesday. When last I saw him, he was still in ICU. He is on the ICU floor, but in a different unit. Jim is doing well. He was up in a chair, and went for a brief walk. We watched a little of the movie Patton on t.v. There is no doubt that he has a lot of work ahead, but he as already done the impossible, recovery from surgery seems pretty doable.

Today may bring some positive changes. If the barium swallow and CT scan are favorable, some of the tubes may be removed. That should increase his comfort level a great deal.

More news as it becomes available.

Judy,

Glad to hear all is going well. This is a very extensive surgery, and yes, there is a lot of work ahead, but Jim is SO strong, and so positive, and that will make a huge difference in things!

Love,
Jenn

I'm so happy to hear that Jim's recovery continues to go well, and all my fingers are crossed that some of those tubes will be gone come the morrow. Hang in there, we're pulling for you!
