Dr. Palmer, the surgeon, came in finally about 6 PM. He didn't spend any time with us. He only said "you can eat full liquids." (He actually had to rush down to surgery.)
So, we immediately ordered some of that wonderful liquid food. Don't ask. It will probably not be a bowl of red beans and rice, or a sautéed soft shell crab with hollandaise sauce. Don't we wish.
More on this long epic tomorrow.
Good night with love. John
