Uncle Jack is back in the ICU as a precaution. He's developed a mild infection. He's also on oxygen to supplement his breathing. I'm glad they didn't intubate, & he's just wearing a mask. I hate seeing those damn tubes running out of the corner of the mouth. Ma says that if he'd just talk a little less he'd get all the oxygen he needs. But that's Uncle Jack.

You have to wear a mask when you visit now. The chemo's weakened his immune system.

I haven't seen him since he started chemo. I'm not squeamish, just overscheduled, as usual.
