Tiny Steps Forward
I have to make this quick. Jeff had his third surgery in ten days time. Today, they closed the incision using his own skin. This is VERY good news on two fronts. One; the swelling was down enough that they could close him, and two; they did it using his own skin instead of a pigskin bridge. Now, after a bit of recovery time, he can begin to actually eat. Of course eating for Jeff right now probably means clear broths. But I have to say that broth can taste like Filet Mignon when you haven't had a single thing to eat for over two weeks.
This is a tiny step forward. We will gladly accept tiny steps in that direction. He continues to show these doctors that his will to live is "Bigger Than The Odds Say". They don't know Jeff the warrior like we do.
