Back in the Hospital this time at Walter Reed

Dec 22
These last days haven’t been the best. I was in the hospital for 3 nights. First, a really nice nurse called Lieutenant McNeal came and gave me a shot called an IV, and trust me, you don’t want one. This shot is different because they pull out the needle but a tube stays in until you need to change it. They gave me antibiotics through the IV.
Every once and awhile the Docs and nurses would come and look at me. I would go to the teen room every once and awhile. Plus you can order an all you can eat meal for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. My favorite nurse was Audrey. She was really nice. Ophthalmologists would come and shine bright lights in my eyes too. I’m glad I was able to get there before something really bad happened.

Hi, this time I’m going to tell you about some really fun things. We went to a friend of my Dad’s house. His name is Mr. Pancho, his son is Francis, and his wife, Veronica. They have a really cool dog named Jerry.
We also went back to Mrs. and Mr. Zelnosky. They made us a wonderful dinner and then watched a really funny movie about Christmas vacation.
The only thing we did besides that was school, school, and still more school.

Hi Jung, Thank you for sending me that comment! My eye healed very well, and I'm not in the hospital anymore but I still have to take pills. Thank you for your concern. So far my favorite places were Paris and Lake Michigan. We pray to God every night. I wish I could be in Alaska even though it's so cold there. We had a great Christmas with my Uncle Eric. Your friend from 5000 miles away....Ben!
