September 7th, 2019: Message from Cheri: “You wouldn't believe the effect that Andrew had on everybody in the hospital. He was so well loved. I saw his anesthesiologist in the cafeteria (which I am god awful thankful that I don't have to eat at anymore!) And he said "it is such a pleasure to take care of Andrew for you." The nurse who told Andrew he looks like Ben Affleck last time reminded him that she was the lady who told him that he looked Ben Affleck! Also, when we came out of surgery and he was re-orienting and coming out of his grogginess they were asking him about opening his mouth and he said, "I can still flow with a microphone." I almost wet my pants.
So rest assured, everyone, Andrew and his sense of humor and personality and perseverance and fortitude and patience is all still fully intact. We love you all for helping us through this. We are so excited to find out and experience what lies before us having gone through all of this and with more to come. Certainly, we will be completely changed and better for all of it and for this we are truly grateful.”
