As I sit here watching you sleep I notice how you tuck your hand under
your chin, your soft brown arm folded gently
over the white blankets
and I’m struck by your beauty again,
your sculpted face,
the cheeks I’ve kissed
so many times
and I wonder
how the heavens ever survived
after you were sent to me.
She’s coming home today!! Wahoo!
She is still recovering, with strong medication but she can recover at home.
And we are waiting for the results of a biopsy, which to be honest is scary because of the fear of cancer.
We are so grateful for all of you! Thank you so much for your thoughts, prayers, encouragement, and well wishes! Your love and support have been amazing.
Thanks again, and peace to you!
