The picture of Butch that you see is from this afternoon - that is the wound vac attached to him. As you can see, he is skinny, but looking better - Irene said today that she thought his face was filling out a bit - he is certainly more alert. He is watching the Republican Convention right now. We walked up in back today - behind the houses - quite a distance (maybe 5 houses down and back). I thought that was good progress. The eating has continued to be better, although not great - maybe he just doesn't like my cooking! Tomorrow is a busy day - I have a Doctor appointment (for me), a dentist appointment (for me) , the oncologist at 3:15, then up to work to talk to my boss about my returning to work.
I will probably go to writing only 1 or 2 times a week unless some big news occurs. Not enough is happening on a daily basis to write about (thankfully so). Butch continues to recuperate, slowly, and I hope to have a good report when I write on a weekly basis.
