.- Chicago Archbishop Cardinal Francis George, continues to recuperate, the Archdiocese has announced.  He’s also received clearance to have a few of his favorite foods.

In a press release yesterday afternoon, the archdiocese announced that the cardinal has been up and out of his bed regularly throughout the day, and has been getting some exercise walking the halls of the hospital with the help of his physical therapist.

Doctors have also cleared the cardinal to return to a full and regular diet and he has made it clear to his staff that he is looking forward to his first, post-operative peanut butter and jelly sandwich accompanied by hot chocolate.

The cardinal is recovering from two surgeries which removed a cancerous bladder as well as parts of his prostate and lymph nodes in which cancer was also found.

The press release says that when he is not resting or working with his physical therapist, the cardinal has been spending his time reading and reviewing archdiocesan business matters with his vicar general.

Cardinal George said his morning prayers with members of his staff yesterday and received communion.  The cardinal was able to concelebrate Mass on Sunday.

Those who wish to send greetings and best wishes to Cardinal George can do so through the Archdiocese of Chicago web site, www.archchicago.org.  Printed email messages are being shared with the Cardinal twice a day.
