Home - Sweet Home!


Dear Friends. Heartfelt thanks for your prayers and good wishes. We're home a few hours and moving forward. So far the reports are very positive. We are exhausted and grateful for so much. Laura of Giggle Fern let her dad know we were in Detroit and he came to us in pre-op. Loren is a Presbyterian minister who teaches world religion at two colleges there. He brought more comfort than I think he knows and I will be forever grateful.
I'm not unpacked yet - except for the medical equipment. I've made a trip to the drug store. Patty, my dear friend brought delicious homemade soup and applesauce. I heard a Robin clucking outside our open window and snapped this quick photo so that I could accompany my expression of gratitude with a picture of the best of Spring - the essence of renewal and hope. Thank you. Thank you. I'll be dropping in on all your blogs as things settle a bit. Hope you are all well and giddy with bloom and birdsong.

Cathy--I have been wondering, and checking your blog every couple hours. Thanks for the update.
Love that little robin in his bath!

Cathy, you posted before you rested! The sign of a true blogging addict, me thinks! I was going to mention something in the email I sent you about how many folks were winging prayers and thoughts your way, and anxiously awaiting news, but decided against it thinking you didn't need any pressure to do anything besides take care of yourself and Keith. Then I got curious and checked your website. Not only had you already reported in but you managed a sweet new photo to accompany your post. I am SO impressed! So glad you're back and that Keith is doing well.

Glad you're home safe and your DH is doing well.

Nice to hear of a blogging friend reaching out to send some extra comfort to you both.

Be well!

I'm glad you're both home and that the news is positive. I hope you can both rest a bit now.

Giddy as that robin in the bath! What a great picture.

So good to hear that you are home safe and sound, and all went well. Big hugs to you and Keith.

What splendid news! I am so happy things went well and that you are home safe and sound. You've been on my mind so much, it's a real relief to hear from you.

Thank goodness you are back and sending good reports. I've been checking your blog every day. What keeps you positive is your outlook and being able to gaze outside and find that adorable sign of spring taking a bath. Rest up. I'll be checking on you...

I'm glad you are home safe and sound, and that your little feathered friends remain ever present to greet you. I hope you've got lots of birdsong there...

Friends,

My dream: to look into the smiling face of each of you and deposit a kiss and a tear of gratitude on your cheek. When I win the lottery - I'm flying y'all to our favorite vacation spot (Cape Cod) for a 1st Annual Blog Buddies Bacchanal or maybe just to my home town of Loudonville, Ohio. (Do check the Outback webcam in my sidebar) Till then I'll content myself with just knowing that I've had the good fortune to find and connect with kind generous-souled people like you.

Boy, I'm sleepy. That deleted comment was incoherent. Next attempt follows:

Hmmm. Maybe . . . Buddies 'Blast' is a bit more sedate than 'Bacchanal'. Then there's 'bash' nah. Hmmmmm. "b" words connoting celebration. Any other suggestions?

Casey said...

In my prayers.

Cathy said...

Thanks, Casey. Sorry 'A Voyage Thither' has vanished. I'd so wanted to wade in on the Holy . . . what was it you wanted - answers? secrets? questions? Ah well - it's just good to hear from you.

The picture is fantastic! Spring is such a good time to heal, my thoughts stay with you.
