Kevin Ware will be just fine, because he has the love and support of family and friends. Oh, and coach will be right back with some Hooters chicken wings.
Every last person involved with Louisville basketball is getting back to the normalcy of life, whatever that means. Kevin Ware is now healing after a horrible compound fracture, the team is keeping their concentration on the task at hand and Rick Pitino was giving wonderful press-conference tidbits.
Thanks to a couple of tweets, we have the best part of Wednesday's presser.

Rick Pitino, laughing, just recounted how Kevin Ware sent him to Hooters to get chicken at 10:30 a.m. when he was in the hospital4/3/2013, 6:01:15 PM
From the Louisville press conference: Kevin Ware asked Rick Pitinto to go to Hooters and get him chicken.4/3/2013, 6:05:01 PM
It seems Ware is a man of my own heart. When life gets you down, you get right back up and head towards the most delicious food item you can think of. In Ware's case, it demanded asking a solid from coach.
Ware will have to watch from afar as his teammates compete for a title. That and the injury sustained really would make for a depressing time at the moment, but every last person is trying to put the young man at ease.
Other than being a courier of tasty delights, Pitino mentions the team will wear a special warm-up with Ware's number.
Darren Rovell gives a closer look at what the team will be wearing.

Other than that, Ware has been getting shows of support from the likes of LeBron James and Kobe Bryant and also recently received a cuddly puppy for his troubles, via USA Today.
That's right, Ware went out and got himself a dog and named him Scar in honor of the permanent badge he now wears on his leg.
Hooters wings and a new puppy: life could be a lot worse.
