First of all, Walter and I -- and the 3-D's, of course -- would like to thank you for all your heartfelt purrs, prayers and get-well wishes. It seems more than a few of you have had some experience with this painful condition, and your empathy comes through.
Well, it seems like your collective purrs are working because Dada is indeed improving! He is still in the hospital, but was allowed liquids by mouth for the first time yesterday. His first taste was prune juice for it's well-known effects, but he had chicken broth for lunch and vegetable broth for supper as well as some lemon jello. Yum!
I imagine he won't be discharged until he has consumed and tolerated some solid food, but we're hoping against hope that he may be home for the weekend.
They still have him doped up on painkillers, but are gradually decreasing the dose.
Once again, thank you for your overwhelming response to this call for purrs. It made Walter very happy (as happy as he could possibly be in his drugged state) when I told him his post garnered the most comments ever on the 3-D blog.
I'll let you all know when he's home.
