Ken was able to leave the hospital yesterday for a few hours to attend his mother's funeral in Seattle. It was great being able to finally have the whole family together. I know his dad was so relieved that he was able to be there. He even stayed for an hour after the funeral for a family gathering. They've got him on this crazy diet (I thought diets were for people who needed to lose weight?!) so he wasn't able to eat the fantastic food that others had prepared for the family but we all got a kick out of his gluten-free bread - it was hard as a rock! He made it back to the hospital in the early evening and was actually glad to return. The IV's he gets 24/7 do help his energy/stamina/appetite so it was good for him to get all hooked up again. Thanks again to everyone for their love and support.

I also eat a gluten-free diet and know what you mean about the bread. It's like eating 3 pieces all in 1 slice. Gluten free life is not too bad once you get used to and find new and exciting things to eat! Glad to hear he got to spend time with family.

Sorry to hear about Ken's mom passing away. We did not know until looked on this site. Never saw it in the Daily World where so many people who knew her would have seen it. Glad Ken is hanging in there.
