Day 18

Chico woke up this morning thinking he was in a beach cottage.  He wasn't of course.  He soon reoriented to his whereabouts. 

One of the fascinating aspects about being hospitalized day after day is the role surpirse plays.  It brings delight to otherwise predicatble tedium.  Today there were several surprises.  A trip to the x- ray room in the basement, the arrival of a back ordered foot brace, a change in the medication for pain management...Chico likes to think that he will come out of this experience with a higher tolerance for surprise.  In fact he intends to delight more in every day surprise.     

The Foot Drop Brace is attached to the External Fixator,
said Pooh to Christopher Robin (as they tried to get comfortable with the unfamiliar).

His next surgery is yet to be scheduled and the uncertainty remains challenging. 

Thank you for your ongoing interest and support.

  1. Thinking of you through this time of uncertainty and healing. The Bristol Federated Church family is praying for you. Let us know if there is anything we can do now or when Chico returns home to continue his recovery.
