Like Trish says, Danny "The Machine" Erickson

I went up early this morning and saw Danny just after 8:00 a.m. He was having breakfast, which was scrambled eggs with ketchup. He wasn't too happy though, because there was no salt, pepper or Tabasco sauce. The eggs were bland he said.

His nurse, Colby, was telling him that the way he was eating, the feeding tube would probably be removed in the next day or two. As nice as that sounded, reality was even better. When Judy saw him this afternoon, the tube had already been removed. Danny is tube free today!

He's still managing pain with medication which he's taking orally in pill form now. There are only a couple of areas that are pain problems. You would think it would be where he was burned, but it's actually where he had skin taken for the grafting. The burned areas are itchy more than painful.

If I remember other details later, I will update this posting.
