My wonderful sister and precious daughter conspired to surprise me today. Penny brought Bella and Sable into Pam's house so that I could visit with them! I was SO happy to see my beautiful dogs. I can't tell you how much I have missed them. Bella stuck by my side the entire time that they were here and Sable came up for her hugs and attention, then checked out Pam's place then laid down where she could keep an eye on me and the rest of the house. I love the difference between the two dogs' personalities! It was such a wonderful surprise but like all good things had to come to an end. Penny had to be to work by noon and was taking my girls to her house for the day/night. I cried so hard when they left...
When I was finished crying, the rest of the day was very nice. My bestest friend, Corry, came over for a visit. She always makes me laugh and makes me feel loved. My handsome son came over and went for a walk with Pam and I. It was a glorious day for a walk!
I'm hoping and praying that I'll be able to go back home next week. I have another doctor appointment on Monday and if things are improving I might be able to get my drains out early next week. It's difficult trying to balance how desperately I want to go back home and be on my own and how much I enjoy being with Pam and the boys and how grateful I am for the wonderful job that she has done of taking care of me through all of my medical crisis this year. I can't imagine being anywhere else through such difficult times but I want to give Pam & Karl and my grandsons their normal lives and routines (and house!) back...and then watch ~ once I'm home, I'll be whining about how much I miss PAM!
Thank you Pam and Penny for the wonderful surprise!
I love you
