Dear Mom, Dad and Paulie,

Well I’m really getting my money’s worth out of this hospital. This morning I was transferred to a private room.(where I can be sick in privacy, I guess) and they’re filling me up with pills every 3 hours or so. (2 sulfa and 6 soda). My throat feels perfectly normal but the captain has ordered it swabbed a few times daily. My stomach is bothering me the most. It feels heavy, as if I want to throw up. I’ve had the captain go over me twice already and I’m back on a soft (liquid) diet again. Of course I still have a fever and feel sort of sleepy. I think it all started from an induced fever caused by the pressure exerted by the wedge in my cast. Then probably something else developed from that, but I don’t think it’s anything very important or serious. I’m pretty sure it will go away when my cast is removed and probably before that.

I saw last nite’s movie in comfort. I had my bed pushed around and the back raised a little so I could see. It was “Home in Indiana,” a technicolor picture about harness racing. Pretty good.

Well that’s all,
Love, Bru
P.S. I didn’t write yesterday because I slept most of the day.
