Muscle Milk

January 10th, 2011 by Conor

It’s 11:43 PM and the night has begun. I opened up some lasagna (brought to the 5th floor of the ICU and sent from some amazingly generous friends) and Conor immediately turned around and perked up. He and I share the same love for food except that I would probably not indulge in an all out war between Cheeze-its and my mouth. The night nurse, Cindy, is a gem and things are going smoothly thus far. Danny is freshly shaved and looking more like himself since the last tube has been removed from his mouth as a result of the PEG. It’s hard to imagine that Danny needs more calories that you or I right now, but the body is an incredible machine and Danny is healing with an extra does of calories and protein.
