After an extended hiatus, it’s back to Natalie! Here she is enjoying her last afternoon (at least for now) in St. Thomas:
I’ve been keeping a secret for a while now; here it is: Rick asked Natalie to marry him, and Natalie accepted! Tonight they are celebrating their last romantic night together for a while, having dinner at my expense!
Natalie is flying to Chicago tomorrow, where she will spend the night in the room she sub-lets from her high-school friend Dan! Tuesday morning, her college friend Brynne will pick her up and drive her to Cincinnati. We expect that Dan will also come along for the (5-hour) ride.
Health Update: The good news is that I had a J-Type feeding tube surgically installed on Friday. Here I am enjoying the proceedings:
The bad news is that I’ve not yet received any “orders” to be fed anything! Hopefully, I’ll start receiving large quantities of real nutrition tomorrow, and will start putting back on some of the 20 pounds I’ve lost!
Next week: CT scan Monday, PET Scan Tuesday, meet with UC Health doctors Wednesday!
