As most of you will remember, it was three weeks ago today that Eddie got out of bed the first time. Wonderful photos and lots of enthusiasm. Then Sunday happened . . . and was followed by ten excruciating days of uncertainty, three open chest surgeries, and most importantly, an amazing recovery.
Needless to say, we are cautiously optimistic about the week ahead for Eddie.
Gastronomically speaking, he's pretty attached to milk, water, and fruit roll-ups right now. The milkshakes, waffles, chocolate cake, and other "high lipid content" foods we're pushing at him get the cold shoulder. Not surprising, really, considering that he's being infused with a pretty high-calorie mystery cocktail through his NG tube. Bon appétit, Eddie.
Also some photos of our brief expedition to Seattle Center for the opening day of Next50. My Microsoft colleagues will recognize our gnomish friend making guest appearances all around the city.
And finally, April 21st can't go by without wishing our friends in the UK and Commonwealth nations felicitous birthday celebrations for the lovely Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor. Happy 86th!
