He's in so much pain that he had trouble lifting his fork to his mouth. His nurse was changing the knee and elbow dressings when I came and the scrapes are healing well, but he is almost completely purple-blue from the bruises. He said they thought they'd let him out next week, and he complained about not getting football games on the TV. I told him that was because he was watching CNN and found ESPN for him. I stayed an hour, until his nurse brought pain meds and he started nodding out, and talked to his nurse a bit after. I'll go see him again Tuesday.
Then, since I hadn't had fried food for a couple of weeks, I stopped by Popeye's and picked up chicken and onion rings. mmmmm
