Action Figure

Just to let you know what they're messing with, this is Papa-san. This is his action figure. My brother had it made for Papa-san's 80th birthday. It is true-to-life down to the belt buckle. He is accessorized with a safari hat, giant single-lens reflex camera, and a pocketful of leaky green pens.

Thanks to his doctors' near-fatal enthusiasm for a powerful statin drug (see 'Crestorfallen' in November), he is in a rehab center now. Today was his 2nd day of physical therapy. I won't tell you his exact progress; that's his story. We don't know how far he'll go, or how long it will take to get there. But nobody has put a limit on his possibilities, and so we go on.
