back in step-down

sorry for the quiet. i'm back in boston and got to see greg yesterday AND today!

greg moved from the icu to the step down unit last night. he's back on solid food, but lost a lot of weight through this recent episode. the hospital is trying their best to load him up with calories (the nurse suggested a milkshake while i was there today) to get his weight (and strength) back up.

the anti-rejection meds are still making things a little confusing, but hopefully that will pass soon.

i know he'd love to receive more cards and/or letters! i'll print the comments you've all left recently for him this weekend.

Hang in there, Gregory! We're all eager for you to get back online, er, I mean, back on your feet!

OK, here's the deal greg, since I know you'll be reading this...

You come back to me, and I'll watch whatever crazy anime you can dream up. Stuff with guys who turn into pandas? fine. Women who rule the Earth by way of their ability to control all of the doughnuts in the world? No problem. Mutant space chickens who can only save the world if they are breaded and deep fried? Sounds delicious.

That's the deal. Take it or...um...sorry, no "or." Just take it, and come back to us!

Hey there sweetie. I know I haven't commented before, but I'm writing a letter and will send it to you soon. I'm glad that you're doing better and in step-down once again. And I look forward to the time when you can have outside visitors, as I'll come on down to Boston when you're up to it to say hi :) Keep on resting and recouperating. *big big hugs*
