An update on Abner. He is doing well after prostate cancer surgery Monday morning.
Doctors believe they were able to get rid of the cancer by removing the prostate. Abner says he had two milestones Tuesday, he got to change his gown and graduated to solid food.
Abner had many visitors, including Sammy Ortega, our news photographer. My mistake was that by 2 pm this afternoon, I hadn't gone by to see him today, or even called, so Abner called me.
"Did you forget I was in the hospital? She forgot. That's okay. If you want to know how I'm doing, call one of my friends. They all know. Alright," joked Abner.
Again, Abner is rapidly improving and entertaining anyone who will listen. I'm told he has already nominated 3 nurses for employee of the month.
