Orange Jello never tasted so AWESOME!!!

Posted: February 3, 2019 in Postcards from Cancerland.


Weekends seem pretty calm in the hospital.
I guess other people are better at scheduling emergencies than we are.
We slept in until 6:00 am after a long, sleepless night.
We got to hang out with our daughter and see some ridiculously cute videos of the Moonpie.
That makes any morning sweet.
We talked to our Doctor and he was pleased enough with the progress that he put me on a liquid diet!!!
SOOOO….after eight days of gourmet ice chips I got Jello and some delicious cream of chicken soup!!
These are both things that were never really my favorite things.
But now they were the most AMAZING food EVER!!!
Life is weird like that, sometimes it’s only absence that creates appreciation.
We aren’t sure when we get to break out.
I’m so unbelievably grateful for the friends, kind words and hardcore prayer.
I remain beyond appreciative for a wife who proves, by her deeds, the very definition of love.
She has dug in and shown a commitment and devotion that leaves me breathless.
SOOOO, I hunker down in my green, hospital gown, thankful that while you are having Doritos and pizza during the big game tomorrow, I will be slurping beef broth and sucking on a sugar free grape popsicle.
Go Rams!!
