I’m pretty sure Chris had never looked forward to cream of potato soup until today. And while it may not have tasted that great, it was a great sign that Chris is doing better as he’s now past the “clear liquids only” diet. In fact, Dr. Belzer told Chris that he may get to go home as soon as Wednesday. So Chris had another good day – he hasn’t had any pain, he seems to be tolerating some food, and he’s getting out for his walks at least 4 times a day. And now he finally gets to look forward to going home!! This also means that if all goes well, Chris will get to enjoy his big birthday from home this weekend – that’s right, he turns the big 4-0 on Saturday (and I’m probably going to pay the price for announcing it on the Internet)!
