    Peter Nap needs our help

    Suddenly there's a valley where men are free to roam.

    Suddenly there's a valley that we can call our home.

    Where each man is his brother, each man is his own.



    An out pouring of good thoughts about the people that defend and promote not only our rights, but each other.

    Thanking Don Litten for all that he has done and being the man that he is.

    Now Don needs our help.

    Hopefully they aren't going to keep me tonight Grapeshot. I think I'm scheduled for the outpatient surgery building.
    This has a 50% chance of a temporary fix, which would be great to eat again.

    Sending my best and warmest thoughts, my friend.

    As someone who was unable to eat for 14 weeks a couple of years ago (IV feeding is NOT food!), I can empathize, and certainly wish you some relief.

    We're thinking of you.

    On the up side, three weeks of meals through my nose was the best diet I've ever been on. Prayers for your fast recovery Don.

    I'm hoping for a permanent fix allowing you to eat again even if that means a longer stay in horsepistol.

    And in tonight's breaking news

    Real food bitten into, chewed, and successfully swallowed.

    According to the National Earthquake Reporting Center the impact on reaching the bottom and falling into the stomach registered 2.7 on the Richter scale, and echoes were reported being heard as far away as eastern Ohio.

    stay safe.

    Be it ever so humble/small, two bites are better than none. It is a start, a beginning of a wash-rinse-repeat mode.

    He ain't heavy, he's my brother

    DoubleTap reminded me of a song by the Hollies from many years ago. We unabashedly offer it up as how we feel about our brother, Don.

    Give a listen, think you will agree - there is some real depth there.

    Grape -

    The poor man has not eaten solid food for **mumble-umph** months. Of course he's not heavy.

    stay safe.

    There's still a long road to go and I have several doctors appointments this week, but I am making progress. Yesterday I was able to eat a scoop of brown rice.
    My body is trying to adjust to having food in it which is not easy.
    I'll be honest, I'm not sure whats in the immidiate future but what I am sure of, is I couldn't have gotten this far without the help from you all though.
    Thank you!

    From nothing by mouth, to a fork full, and now a scoop......soon a plate full we predict.

    We can do naught but play the cards we are dealt. When bad cards appear and your stack get low, friends will ante up and cover your bets - count on it! Right now you have other things to concern you.

    BTW - Let's not forget the strength and loyalty of your keeper through all of this. Trust she is doing well.

    Peter is taking in a small amount of food from what I understand, but his body is not processing/digesting it. All of the good flora, bacteria has been destroyed apparently. Needs to have that process kick started, IMHO.

    Good news is he is still upright and grumpy. Yes, grumpy is good.


    At this point, we are hardly meeting his out of pocket expenses. Take a look and see if you can help a bit. Much thanks to those who have contributed.
