LOGISTICS SUPPORT–KATY, TX–18 JAN 2009–17:54:29
We interrupt this blog to announce that the ETA for the improvement of Sam Young’s radiated esophagus has been correctly calculated by the esteemed radiation oncologist, Dr. Gregory Chronowski.
The much anticipated turnaround was obviously underway today, as evidenced by Mr. Young’s increased caloric intake. It included two bowls of biscuit gravy, one jar of beef baby food, three servings of vanilla pudding, one Slim-Fast, one drinkable yogurt, two Lifesaver candies, and several glasses of water.
In addition, Mr. Young undertook an exercise regimen that included walking up and down the driveway, albeit slowly.
Mr. Young notes that although he still cannot swallow any food without regular administration of pain medication, he has actually entertained positive thoughts about food. This is, indeed, a breakthrough.
Support staff is seriously contemplating the addition of smooth peanut butter into the biscuit gravy. It can’t be any worse of a concoction than beef baby food and gravy.
