In case the account of Brooke's recent transport to the U hospital for surgery on an abscess seemed alarming, please know that he's back at South Davis now, "resting comfortably" as they say. It's true that he has to stay in bed, not sit up in the wheelchair, until the incision heals. But it's not entirely true that he's resting--he's back at work on upping his off-the-vent times (he's up to six hours a day again, on good days at least) and has a new motorized pedal exerciser for the legs. He says he feels much better--indeed, yesterday he said he felt "great."
(Hooray for big antibiotics and for very attentive care.)
