The bad - another setback relating to last year's accident landed my family back in the hospital. And those cots they put in the rooms for family members qualify as torture devices.
The good - the prognosis is better than we expected (we're looking at two weeks in the hospital, and hopefully just one more surgery, fingers crossed) and I got to come home to drawers full of washed and folded clothes, a clean house and a freshly made bed.
Plus bacon and eggs for breakfast. I really do have the best boyfriend.
And I did a bit of squealing because I found blooms and tiny fruit on my mandarinquat tree. I can't wait.
P.S. Ever wondered what three words I would use to describe myself? You can find that out, plus more, over on Michelle's blog, love in details.
So sorry to read about your family landing in the hospital (and finding out the details from that older post).. I hope he will make a swift recovery, Rachel. A comfy bed, clean sheets, and home-made breakfast sound like great ways to combat the hospital blues... Sending kind thoughts your way.ReplyDelete

Oh this is tough, but hopefully you are approaching the end of this long road to recovery. So glad you have somebody to take care of you while you're going through this. A made bed, clean laundry and breakfast are small, but vital, comforts in times of stress.ReplyDelete

Oh, Rachel, I'm so sorry. It still makes my blood boil to think about what happened to him. I hope he really does get out of the hospital quickly, and for good this time. I'm glad D was there for you. I agree with Jane - the little things can mean so much.ReplyDelete
