Day 39

Feeling good at day 39.  Tomorrow we head to Boston for our weekly checkup.  Our first appointment is not until 10AM.  While we are down there this time, they will also be removing my last Hickman line from my chest.  Not sure if you remember, but they removed the first one when I was still in the hospital with no sedation.  Screaming and vulgarities were involved.  Our nurse has assured us that there will be pain meds and sedation this time around.

I am eating a bit more food now.  I have started having smoothies and Carnation shakes.   Giving me some much needed calories.  I have been walking 15 minutes a couple of times a day.  Next week, I would like to add in a slow jog and get the bike trainer setup.

Hope everyone has a great holiday this year!  It definitely is a special Christmas this year at the Davis household.  We are ready to put 2010 in the history books.

Hi Chad,

Merry Christmas to you and your family! My heart is with you and best wishes to you and all hopes for your continuing recovery. My husband, Paul Cereste (buyer for PWD) made me aware of your situation. I imagine every day is a struggle in some way, but also a gift as well.
We are thinking of you...

With love,

Sue & Paul

I hope you had a good Christmas, Chad. You and your family are in my thoughts - the kids ask how you are doing all the time.

Here's your smile... :)

Glad things are going well Chad. I hope you & your family had a nice & relaxing Christmas. Let me know if I can do anything to help with stuff around the house that may be difficult for you right now. Not sure if you have my number, but you could probably hack into the PWD server to get it. Or just call the plant. Hee hee. :o) Take care, my friend.
