home

where our feet may leave, but never our hearts.
and where there is much laundry and housework to be done.

I cannot fully express our gratitude.
We felt loved by all of you -

So many times, over the last few days, I sat in my vinyl chair with my laptop pressed against the window to begin a post...
a post about the emotional stages I go through when I am living with Youngest at the hospital
a post about the smells in the hospital (we both have sensitive noses)
a post about not being able to see or speak with K for so long as we are both working so hard
a post about being grateful for having a child with only serious chronic asthma
and then, it occurred to me that I would simply say
we
are
home.

home, where our feet may leave, but never our hearts.

we will now resume our regular blogging lives.

So happy to have you both back home. Now you just need some sun and warmth and bounceback time.

Rick has asthma, and I know how frightening it is. Worse in a child than a husband, I'm sure.

So, yeah. Welcome home.

Welcome, Welcome Home!

Your husband!
Your Middle!
Your Dear Pooch!
Your Bed!
Your Kitchen!

Ah, the smells and sights of home. I hope you can get to bed early, and sleep the sleep of the Just.

And that Middle has had a great first day back, and even better rest of the week.

I mean YOUNGEST!
(And I hope Middle has a great week, too!)

I thought about you all day and wondered if you were home. You are downplaying what youngest suffers with but I know from my sister's kids, who have reactive airway disease, how debilitating it is.

Put ya feet up with some Green & Blacks, turn on that soap, and shut your eyes.

Blackbird, Blackbird, Blackbird. That was quite a stint in the hospital. I'm very happy to know you and Youngest are home where you belong. And yes, we will discuss this OVER DRINKS.

I don't think any other words could speak as loud and clear as the ones you just put down there.

Hugs Blackbird... Big hugs Youngest.


I have a very sensitive nose... my family can't believe how sensitive it is!

I was out of town today with no access to blogs and wondered and worried about you both all day. So glad you're sprung.

So glad he's better. I'll cross my fingers that it doesn't get that bad again.
Suse said…
Oh welcome home. I am smiling so hard for Youngest, and for you, and K and Oldest and Middle.

The dog? Oh ok then ...
BabelBabe said…
So glad to hear you are all home and relatively ok.
Bec said…
I want to be Badger and just say YAY!
But she did it perfectly, so instead I'll say it's so good to know Youngest is back home...

and I hope I made you cry in a kinda happy way, not a worried way, with that latest post!
Karan said…
Good news! I hope all is back to normal. Now, for the really important question...did he like my little joke?

oh, dear. i've missed a lot...you're a fabulous mother, you know? i'm sure that made the crapfest of a hospital stay far less crappy.

i'm so glad that youngest is better. we've had our fair share of breathing treatments over here and i can't say that they've been much fun. we've been lucky to miss out on the hospitalization. he seems like quite the trooper...and i'm really diggin' the monster.

it's nice to know that you're all safe and sound...
and home.

Thank goodness. So glad you are home and that Youngest is okay.
I'm so glad you're home. I'm so glad you're glad you're home. Home is wonderful.
