I'm planning on making him some oatmeal raisin cookies, and possibly plan a day trip with the girls to go see him soon. (That will be an interesting day though-ugh! 2-3 hour drive, one way, then back again? We'll see...) ;)
I just hope he's resting well, the traction machine isn't hurting him too much and he sees a benefit to this sooner rather than later!
