Since losing much of his face in a horrendous cannibalistic attack last month, Ronald Poppo has been recovering at Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center. Today, doctors say Poppo is feeling better. “He’s pleased to report to all of you that he’s feeling well, he’s eating, he’s walking around with physical therapy, he’s talking with us,” said Nicholas Namias, a trauma surgeon and co-director of the center. Poppo lost his nose and left eye as a result of the attack, but doctors hope that he will once again be able to see out of his right eye. While recovering, doctors say, Poppo is ”living in the moment and just wants to talk about routine things.”
