thumbs UP & baby steps...

hi everyone! bert's recovery is going well. he has taken a few short walks in the hallway, and is taking enough pain medication to manage the pain effectively. talking to him is hilarious, as he either randomly says something from outer space, or he trails off, leaving him in outer space...he's still eating ice chips only...slow process getting the 'ole intestines back to working order. thanks so much for keeping him in your thoughts & prayers. xoxodaniela

ps. this was taken right after surgery. hospital-gown-green is not his best color!!! : )


  1. Daniela,

    Thanks for the update... I so remember being in that place, all the pain meds, the inability to handle anything but ice chips... I don't know if he's having anything like the nausea I was having, but if he is, that's no fun, either.

    Please tell Bert that I am thinking of him. I am thinking of you, too, as I know how hard it is to have a loved one going through this. I can't imagine also having two small children at the same time, though...

  2. Daniela and Bert,

    Just wanted you to know I'm thinking about you. I hope that Bert is getting closer to eating food.
