More Dave news

I just spoke to Dave and he was in very good spirits and feels a lot better. He thinks he wil be in the hospital at least until Tuesday. He doesn't know if he will wind up in rehab or if he will go home. His lungs and his voice is much improved. It is the pre-leukemia condition that he is most concerned with but I told him that he has a lot of prayers and that he had to do his part by staying positive and eating. He is weak, in part, because he hates the hospital food. So, I encouraged him to eat and finally, they gave him a couple decent meals. He is a delightful person and I am sorry that I cannot visit in person. He does have some cute nurses. He knows the DC community cares and it means a lot to him. He really has had a very varied and interesting life.
Best, Susan

Thanks, Susan, for the news. Yes, he has to eat and I'm glad he got some meals that were better. We're all pulling/praying/cheering for him. He's such a sweetheart.

I am sorry, "fres" in Yiddish means to eat. I said, "fres!" or eat!! (I was emphasizing that he needed to eat to get his strength back. It made him laugh and he knew what I meant.

MichelleMarie, I can assure you that he is aware of all the love, support and prayers that he is getting from the board. He was happy to talk and I told him more than once that I didn't want to wear him out and I promised that I would call tomorrow.
