No Jello for you

Doug got his tube removed from his nose around 2 PM this afternoon but right now he is still on nil by mouth.

Dr M. came in to check on Doug's progress and he is happy with the way Doug's incision is healing.
If he continues to heal well, the plan is to remove the staples in the next day or so.

Doug is pretty hungry now but the decision to restart the clear liquids diet and when is ultimately in the gastro specialist's hands, who is apparently taking a more conservative approach to Doug's treatment.

I guess we need to hold off on sneaking in the mashed potatoes and gravy for a little while longer.

I will post again as soon as I have more news.
