From Me

A quick post
trying to relearn computer with brain fog.

A long way to go
and to think the healthy one  suddenly developed a heart emergency
and almost wish they had let me be,
Told that if it was my time I would have not survived the surgery,

So home now 4 days, precious home and I will do all I can do to heal and gain 10 lbs lost.

Special son arriving in a few weeks.

Very emotional
happy one moment
and the next weeping

You are all dear to me, and we have never met.
Thank you for your prayers

Flowers on header
arrived from my son.

Plus visits from many and 4 Valentine boxes of candy.

a new life begins Now

a transition for the busy one

and I will
I will and have to accept.

Ernestine, I never comment on blogs but I have been reading your’s for a very long time and am so glad to know that you are home again. Being back in your own home should make you get better much more quickly. I’m sure there are many, many more people like me who are hoping for the very best for you. You are so lucky to have such a wonderful family. Take care of yourself.

I think of you as the "come back kid"! Thankful you ARE back. To be emotional seems perfectly acceptable to me for one such as you! Sending my most sincere wishes for healing of body, soul, and spirit.

Don't overdo it. Take care of yourself.

So glad Jamie updated us--we were all so worried.
I hope you don't have to have any more oral surgery, it always seems to lead to such other complications. XX OO

'Much love to you, Ernestine. I saw your beautiful bouquet on Instagram and was so happy to see the update from you. Spring will be here soon. May it be a time of peace and healing. ♥

It was wonderful to see the banner change and know that you are home! You have been in my thoughts and heart. You are one strong lady!

I wanted to email you and I lost your email. I am so glad you posted and that you are home as I was worried. You are the Bounce Back Lady. You have survived so very much. One challenge after another.

Big hugs and big love.

Home and love will heal you.

Ernestine, it's so good to see you here and know that you are back home in your bit of heaven. Thank your daughter for updating us to let us know what was going on. Enough with those oral surgeons! I've had my own bout with one last fall, BP spiked for no reason that I was expecting, and now on a mild med. Could be worse. Rest, relax and heal. Spring will soon be here. ( We hope)

RITA LOEHR said...

So happy to hear you are home, and so sorry for what you have been through. Sure just being home is very comforting to you. I was happy to read the update your daughter wrote. You have a wonderful family, and so many friends who read your blog and care about you!

It is great to know that you are back in your own wonderful home at the edge of the woods. The flowers in your header picture are beautiful. With the good food choices you have at home, hopefully those 10 lbs will be back soon.

Take care. I'm sending healing thoughts your way.

Glad you’re home again and on the mend. Be patient with yourself.

What a wonderful surprise to see this post and know you are home, amidst all your beauty, and, once again, making a great recovery.

So sorry you have had to endure so much, but you are amazing, and I hope you have full recovery, and can enjoy a visit with your dear son!

Love to you,
