Home

The Knuckle Head is home at last. Once his fever broke, he rebounded amazingly quickly. He can't eat much (the surgeon tied of many varices around his stomach and esophagus) and is, of course tired, but up and around, if not yet mowing the lawn. Now it's just a matter of waiting to see if his body can regrow the veins it needs to establish adequate blood flow to the organs. But that's another worry for another day. For now, I'm trying to rest in the happiness of having made it over this very large hump.

As for me, I'm busy, tired, and emotionally drained. No surprise, and this too shall pass. Thanks for all the notes, good wishes, and cyber hugs. xoxo

Back home! You now have him in your clutches. Good luck making him behave. This is really great news.

I will try and send out some sort of vein growing vibe and direct it towards your part of the world. Seriously. It's my superpower!

Hooray! Here's to life beginning to resume some normalcy for y'all. And to speedy and safe and appropriate vein growth!

I'm glad to hear it!
You need to get yourself some rest and relaxation, sounds like....chocolate and naps should be involved, I think. :)

Time to grab a pint of Hagen-das, shove in a DVD in the ole television, and chill. I recommend "Some Like it Hot." One of the funniest movies ever. Also, a guilty pleasure of mine is Wedding Crashers. Totally tasteless and sexist but funny sexist. The ending falls apart when it loses the crass, but up until then you can't beat Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson for hilarious crass. Love you and give your husband a hug for me.
