“He is progressing. He transitioned from a liquid diet to solid food this morning,” she said.
Meeks underwent surgery Jan. 7 at Trinity Medical Center in Birmingham to remove some 80 percent of his stomach, as well as some lymph nodes in his abdomen.
He is expected to undergo radiation and low-dose chemotherapy treatments
