Chico is groggy after a pretty good sleep. His muscles twitch which is shocking and excruciating. A muscle relaxant helps. He still twitches but seems to wake up less. He is dozing this morning, and reading a bit.
Surgery to close the wounds is scheduled for this afternoon. Chico has been fasting since last night. I would imagine that when one is lying on his back for the 10th day with most of one's body in pain and forcibly immobilized, food is a nice diversion...One that will pass Chico by today. Oh well, it will be more French toast, Brown Cow cream top yogurt with maple syrup and Coffee before we know it. I hope it will feel like that to him tomorrow after he sleeps for most of this day and night.
Today we remind ourselves to feel lucky. We never have to remind ourselves to be grateful for your support. We just are.
