Day 15

Tuesday 9:40 p.m.

Judy saw Danny today and he's doing real well. He was awake most of the day and relatively alert. He was talking about business concerns and insurance matters.

The most recent surgery has left him in an uncomfortable state, mostly from fluids that accompany the healing. Last evening the staff gave Danny control of his pain medication to administer it as needed. He was very happy to have some control over any aspect of his own well being.

He's been eating better today. Judy says he ate twice as much today than he did yesterday. He still has issues with nausea, so he was given a medication which eliminates it for a short time as he eats. We suspect it's the feeding tube in his throat that is part or all of the problem. Once he was medicated, he ate much better and enjoyed it more.

Judy thinks that visitors will soon be able to come by.

Not too much more to report, but we're pleased with today's progress.



  1. Thank you for your constant updates. It's comforting to know what a great support system Danny has and to hear about his daily progress. Danny and the family are in all our thoughts and I know with all the wonderful support he'll have a great recovery!

  2. Let Danny know that Kirstin and Ian say Hi and that we are checking on updates 3 times a day. We will be sure to swing by as soon as he is ready for visitors.
