Amado the Coconut Monkey UPDATE

We went to see him this morning. He looks much better, and the uncasted foot really has come down. It's still swollen but looks better and he says it doesn't hurt very much, he's doing his best to stay totally off of it. The one in the cast is still very swollen but he can feel his toes and the Doctor told him to expect it to stay swollen for 2 weeks, so one week down, one to go.

He was extremely grateful for the money and said that he will definitely be careful so it will last. We were able to take it up to 8,250 pesos with other donations, and a 3 kilo bag of cat food.

Of course where he lives (immaculately clean) has common restrooms in the center, so he has to walk probably 50 feet to get to them, but other than that he is sitting with his feet elevated.

It was a relief to have him sound more like him and not a guy who was just hanging in there. We have never seen a white plaster cast so clean! Looks like snow, he's doing a good job of taking care of himself so far. One week down, 7 to go.
