Update on Aunt Emily...

She's home from the hospital. Still in a wheelchair and will be for awhile. One leg had the surgery with metal plate to repair a low leg break. The other had a crack in the foot and the already replaced knee is damaged. So she has a boot on that foot and a brace on her knee. The doctors have her on the BRAT diet. It's bananas, something I can't remember for the R, applesauce and toast. Anybody know what the R is for? She sounds really upbeat and positive especially for being 80 or 81, I can't remember. The church is taking good care of her I know, and so is Oliver. Jane had to go back to Jakarta, but comes home often. Paul was there for awhile and John and his wife stay close.

Does John have a wife? At reunion last year I met a very nice "girlfriend"; is she now a wife?

That John, you have to watch him close, don't you!? :)

R is for rice, I think.
I remember being given this diet for an upset tummy years ago (like, in college). Very bland, but soothing, I suppose!
