I got a call late last night that Vernon had returned to Mesa Verde after having an ultrasound on his arm. The tests ran negative and there was no clot, and since he received no new treatment, I mentally prepared myself for a difficult morning. My friend Susan offered to come along. I figured I’d need her for moral support, at least.
We found him surprisingly alert, his face thinner, and yesterday’s swollen hand shrunk down considerably. The doctor is perplexed on how he could have changed for the better so quickly, but I’m not complaining. I don’t know what we will find tomorrow, but this is a remarkable change today.
Susan and I asked him questions about Norway and then what he knew about World War II (don’t ask me how we arrived at either subject.) Here is a little lesson in European History, brought to you by Professor Vernon P. Adams.
The video cuts off right when Susan says: “You’ve got a great memory.”
To which he replied: “I HAVE got a great memory.”
