“As well as can be expected”

Reading a post today: Someday by Billy Mac, Superman can’t find a phonebooth, I commented that I hoped he was feeling better, almost adding in jest, the quote above.


What does that even really mean? How do I know what they expect? How do they know what I expect? It’s certainly not anything you want to hear as a patient, or as the loved one of a patient.

I think Billy has a good sense of humor and anytime I think the blogger does, I try to comment in turn. But maybe I’m just over thinking this.

The quote is a weird, even ominous thing to hear, in my opinion. And if you know me at all, I’m just full of opinions and assume the right to express them here on my blog, hence, my opinions. So, Billy, I sincerely hope you are doing well, and much better than anyone expects. ; )

  1. I just saw this, so sorry for the late response. I really didn’t think much of it other than being thankful that you asked how I was doing. Thank you for that, it always means a lot.
    “as well as can be expected” is a real thing I suppose. I expect to wake up each morning and to always appreciate each day. Any day that I feel good and accomplish something will exceed my expectations and qualify as a bonus.
