Freekin out Friday!

Dis is early, we know, but mom will be bizzy tomorrow, er, today, um, what ever...she went wif jeff fur his pre-surjeree appointment and took notes and asked a lot of kweshtons. Dis made Jeff laff cuz mom was being herself, it's dat control freak stuff and a little OCD thrown in. Dey told Jeff to eat a big brekfast cuz he can't eat anything for 24 hours and den he can only haf soft foods for another 24 hours. So, him and mom went shopping fur him...jello, bananas, milk, yogurt, oatmeal, rice cereal (like babies eat), sherbet...ya know, lots of soft stuff cuz dis kinda food only fills yoo up fur a couple hours. She's gonna make him some vegetable soup too. Dis was all on da "approved foods" list, they bawt effurything dat was on da list! He hasta rinse his throat wif warm salt water every 4 hours fur da first 24 hours too. Da spot where da lumpy thing is is right ahind dat hangy down part, yoo know, dat punching bag thing. Oh, mom sez it's called a uvula. Dey is gonna give him some stuff dat will make it kinda numb too. He can either spray it on da spot or dip a Q-tip in it and touch it to da spot. His sister arrives from Florida on Saturday afternoon and one of der frends from high school is picking her up! Everyone is being so helpful and kind. It's amazing how many frends yoo find yoo haf when yoo is in need. His naybor is gonna drive him to and from his chemo appointments and another sed she'd help wif da aminals and cleaning and stuff, but, his sister will be there fur as long as he needs. Her hubby might even come up later to help out. Der last sticky bean is graduating from high school in June. Da doctor is positive dat dis can be beaten, dat it has not spread and dat Jeff will be back to making computer programs, kitty and woofie treats and playing his trumpet in no time. Oh, and mom showed him all da comments and he sed dat we is da greatest bunch in da world...thank you all fur yoor purrs and purrayers!
Update-12:38 pm: Jeff hadded da surjeree and is back home! Dis morning mom and dad took him out fur breakfast afore da surjeree and he stuffed himself so full dat he fell asleep while dey were doing da surjeree. Mommy gots to scrub up and put on funny looking hats and masks and scrubby clotheses and actually WATCH dem take da polip out! She said it looked like dey was using a hole punch to get it all. He has a spot back der dat looks like he skinned his throat about da size of a dime. Mom sez dey used a laser to kawterize it and it din't hardly bleed at all. The actual surjeree took 20 minits but den he hadda stay fur another 30 so dat dey could check it after da numbing started to wear off. Jeff sez it don't really hurt dat much, kinda feels like a mild strep throat and da doctor sez it was already starting to heal. In 30 minits! So, he's sucking ice chips and mom is staying wif him til his sister comes tomorrow...not dat he's in any danger, but just in case. Like dad sed, all he needs is to get da flu or some stoopid thing and not be able to tell da 911 operator what's wrong. Oh, and mom is getting to use one of his 7 laptops, dats right, 7, and he has 3 pc's too. Plus he has high speed cable, a DSL connection and a blade server, whatever dat is. We are gonna tell yoo lotsa stuff about him later...he haf a really intristing life.
