near riot this morn by pops

the hospital cafe opened 3 minutes late this morn with a crowd of about 20 angry coffee addicts pounding on door and shaking their fists. when the melee abated I got my cup and drank it in the ICU with me boy watching a spectacular peach-pink-purple dawn in the NE sky.

the night nurse said he had had a quiet night. Second in command nerosurgeon DR. Walsh examined J at 6:40 and was pleased with his increased reaction to pain; at one point J moved his right hand about a foot. I did not notice any change from yesterday in tracking with his eyes but they are bright and alert.
