Thank you everyone for all your care and concern about myself and my dear neighbor. We received a note yesterday from Fred's daughter saying he was doing well (WHEW!) and that he had been moved out of ICU and into a private room. She said his cancer is inoperable but they expect him to have many good days yet.
We went and saw him this morning at the hospital and he looked great. His brother and his wife were there when we arrived and shortly thereafter, his grandson and his great-grandsons arrived and then a woman with the cutest therapy dog. So it was quite a full house and lots of love going around.
He had had a restless night and he dozed a bit while we were there but his spirits were good. He did express some anxiety about going home and being alone - then he added that he felt better knowing we were next door. That really tugged at my heart.
Anyway, so today is a lot brighter around here. Hope you're all having a lovely Sunday!
