Flowers for Algernon Progress Report 6
Writing from his hospital bed the day before the operation, Charlie feels scared. Well-wishers send flowers and Joe Carp delivers a chocolate cake from Donner's Bakery. Charlie's co-workers have not been told why Charlie is having an operation. Miss Kinnian visits and Charlie senses that she is nervous. Clutching his lucky rabbit's foot, his good-luck penny, and his horseshoe, Charlie hopes the operation will make him smart like other people so that he will have many friends.
