Back Among the Semi-Coherent and Almost Relaxed

Sorry for the prolonged absence. To say that things have been "busy", "chaotic" or "stressful" really doesn't even begin to explain how life's been around our neck of the woods lately. My mother recently underwent heart valve replacement surgery and the build up to the surgery, as well as the very long two weeks after surgery, were stressful and occasionally frightening. I'm very pleased to say though that things seem to be looking up. I think we'd all agree that it's about time. We're all looking forward to relaxing and enjoying the remainder of our summer.

Many, many thanks to those of you who have been such good friends to me, both online and in real life. Your support has meant the absolute world to me and my family.

Oh, and Mom? I can't tell you how grateful I am to have my best friend back home and ready for a chick flick marathon. Love you.

{collective sigh of relief!}

I knew when I saw a couple new entries that you had passed the peak of that rollercoaster and are enjoying a moment with a smidge less anticipation anxiety and adrenaline.

Welcome back! And I am so glad you have your best friend again. Makes all seem right with the world again, doesn't it?

I have been keeping you and your Mother in my thoughts.
Glad she is home.
Maybe you can get some rest.

I've missed you, and I'm glad to see you back.
