(UP) — Six-* year-old Forrest "Nubbins" Hoffman laughed and Jokc;J with f ; parents and nurses yesterday his father Marshall Hoffman, was confident the boy would recover from an ailment that stacked the odds 1000-to-l against him. Expressions cf sympathy poured into the hospital here from all parts of the country just as they did three years ago when Nubbins was near death from his sickness.

Today, the Hoflmans thanked everyone who wished their son well, but first they said they "thanked God." "My side hints." were Nubbins' first words when he woke up after the operation yesterday. Then he asked for a drink of water. "He's okay." his father said as Nubbins began joking with nur£e.= Hospital attendants said the boy "restcd well" throughout the niglit and his condition was "quite good." It was believed it would take him three weeks to recuperate. Nubbins' doctor said befoie the operation that the boy would have- to undergo a third' operation to effect a permanent cure.' Yesterday he said Nubbins might not need to undergo surgery again. "We'll have to wait and see." he said. He said that the operation was not serious in Itself, but that Nubbins' inability to throw off body poisons endangered ni.', life. He iiad said the chances against Nubbins' recovery were 1,000 to rne. The three operations were to correct the condition. The surgeon said that Nubbins would "get along okay" If sutures remain in place. But Mrs Hoffman said, "I'm going to have a hard time keeping him quiet. He'5 a pretty rough boy."
