Dave Update: "First Bite with a Spoon!"

Hi everyone,

Happy Monday from Dallas.

It's 5:11 pm and we've just gotten back from the daily doctor visit. It went well, and all rubber bands are doing what they are supposed to do. (I even managed to get the front one on and off with the hemostat, so I'm forcing Jody to refer to me as "doctor" from here on out.)

To celebrate the good check up, we went to Boston Market and it was a milestone, as she managed to eat with a spoon and drink from a glass. We have to go very slow and have lots of napkins at the ready, but it really gave her an expanded sense of freedom.

All the excitement has worn her out for now though, so we're back at the hotel, taking the evening's meds and settling in for the night.

It's still looking good to come home at the end of the week, and she's excited about that as you can imagine.

In the meantime, thank you again to everyone for everything, and much love to you all. We miss you, and hope to see you soon.
