Glenn is doing really well.
The first week was pretty rough and very typical of what others have gone through. He had lots of pain, weakness, mucus, lack of sleep....
Now his pain is minimal so much so that he wants off his narcotic pain relievers. Mucus is minimal and dry mouth setting in.
He's dying to eat but most things don't work yet. He's drinking juices and Ensure and although hard, it's going down and staying down.
One funny thing; yesterday I came downstairs after taking a shower to find him sitting at the kitchen table with the dog eating a bowl of cereal next to him on the floor. I asked him how that worked and he said "Not well, too crunchy and too cold". I also found a can of peaches on the counter later in the day. I know he remembers me telling him about Skiffin eating peaches because they slid down easily. Maybe through the blender today.
There is a boredom factor setting in also. He would like to be out doing things he usually does but can't just yet and it's frustrating him.
Anyway, I'm really happy to see him where he's at now.
