Happy news from our direction, or should I say, from Illinois, tonight. Marty is home. After a long few weeks of not knowing, Marty was transferred to Barnes hospital in St Louis last Friday, and by yesterday they seemed to have the right combination of meds to control the voices in his head and stop the terrible tremors. We are still waiting to see how he will do at home, but are very relieved that he is HOME. Thank you all so much for all the wishes, prayers and positive thoughts....they are appreciated so very appreciated.
Meanwhile, here on Cape Cod, I was busy dog sitting last weekend, and dealing with severe allergies. I think they are finally under control with a big dose of Allegra every 12 hrs and a visit to my acupuncturist.
Looking forward to being with LM and Ms Graysea this weekend.... although I know I will have to work hard to distract her from gazing at her boyfriend....those two are besotted.
I've enjoyed two wonderful programs on PBS this past week....one on Whales and Dolphins and the other about the Himalayas. Very captivating offerings from the PBS Nature series. I've been happily quilting while I watch....I'm such a multi-tasker and would love to break the habit, except it always feel so good to have something tangible to appreciate. Amidst all the other activities, I am also reading a good book "The Great Husband Hunt" by Laurie Graham - it's covering one woman's zestful life from before WWI.
During all these at-home activities, I've been enjoying mini-bites of a glorious cupcake brought to me from Brooklyn Heights, NY last Sunday by my wonderfully thoughtful and fun co-worker, Christopher. The masterpiece of deliciousness came from Crumb Bakery. Oh my, I am so happy it is not nearby, although they do take orders on line!
Feeling very relieved and grateful and sated right now.....
