Well, Poppy got things moving last night and was rewarded with a delicious clear liquid dinner. Trust me, no man has ever been more excited over Jello than he was. So depending on how things went over night and this morning, he might be released sometime today. We can only hope, right?
So all of y'all's prayers worked wonders, and I've got one more request if you're willing. The entire time he was in the hospital, he got one ONE floral arrangement, a gorgeous bowl of flowers with big gorgeous Yellow Roses of Texas, from wirecutter and Miss Lisa. I know he'd never say anything, would never let on that it bothered him, but I know with certainty it does. He and mom have lived in their hometown since 1967, been active in the church, he's been a Mason for more than four decades, he and mom are always the first to offer help, visit, send dishes, etc. when someone they know (and often when someone they don't know) needs help. And not one of the locals came through. Nothing from the church, but several members individually have visited him, nothing from the Masons, nothing from friends he's known for, well forever.
So my request is, if you'd like to, please send him a get well card. I'm very protective of them, so I won't post his home address, posting my PO box instead. If you'd prefer to send something directly to him, email me. Not that I don't trust y'all, but, you know.
I'd never realized how awkward it is to ask for something, but this is for Poppy and I'd give him the world if I could. So thank you for all your prayers and well wishes.
