Where the Heart Is


Home. He's HOME.

As of Monday.

Though very frail, very shaky, tired and terribly weak, He. Is. Home.

After cancer surgery, a cardiac incident, MRSA, pneumonia and another bug, in the last of these four months he contracted C difficile.

We were beginning to wonder if items like yaws and beri-beri were next.

Even though he needs assiduous attention, I hope to resume blogging more regularly soon.

I am so sorry I was unable to respond to (and often even read) your many kind emails and comments. However, this machine seems to have recovered from most of its sulky fits. I will try to catch up.

I have missed you.

Bernita, please don't fret about not personally responding. Really we understand and I for one certainly didn't expect a response. You had much more important work to worry about.

I'm so happy for you both and I hope the road to recovery picks up speed. Glad to have you back!

Bernita said...

Dear Hearts, you overwhelm me with your caring messages.
There are no words of appreciation sufficient.
There were times I couldn't afford tears and felt such generous sympathy would make me crack.
But he is HOME and I can do things for him now.

archer said...

Oh, good! Nobody blames you for not responding. First things first, after all. I am glad he is home.

Lana Gramlich said...

Heck hon, don't worry about blogging & reading/responding to comments. Your family comes first, always! I'm glad to hear he's home. Y'all take care & know that you're in our thoughts. *big hug*
