At Home, Again

It is so good to have my husband back home. He spent two and a half weeks in the hospital this time. Now he is enjoying his own bed, his own things, the quiet and peace of being back in the fold of his family.

There has been improvement. There have been discussions with doctors. We have a plan for his continued recovery, and plans for later, after he is recovered which I am sure some of you will guess at and approve of, but I won't discuss now.

My goal right now is to help him heal, build up his strength, get him to put back some of the 30 plus pounds he lost. He is eating a lot better now by the way, though still very small amounts. He is facing a reconstruction surgery in a few months to reconnect a section of the bowel, but we are not even going to think about that at this time.

So many great comments, support, encouragement, emails, advice and good ideas from you wonderful people. Every comment was read and appreciated. Thank you so much for the love and caring!

Sunnier days ahead!!!

Dearest Robin...
I had no idea your hubby had gone back to the hospital...I've been a bit out of the loop with moving and am trying to get caught up on blogs. I'm so sorry he has had to go thru all of this! Now that he is back home however, I pray for swift and total healing for him. He's been thru enough, as have you. Enjoy your healing time now and claim it as yours! :)
Much Love and Many Hugs!!!

Much love to both of you. Now's the time for R&R and taking sometime for both of you to regroup, mentally, physically and spiritually. Being comfortable in your home environment is a healing all in itself. So happy hubby is on the mend. I'm sure you will have him healthier and strong very soon.
