I'm Home!

It's so good to be home.  I had the absolute BEST care at The Heart Institute at Sacred Heart Hospital.  People come from several western states to receive care there...but there is place like home.

The owner of Dennis' company sent me this exotic orchid.  It's amazing and huge.
Look at all of the flowers.
Jenny brought me this beautiful tea rose.
I wasn't able to crochet at all in the hospital.  Too many wires and tubes.  But I've made great progress since I got home on the blanket Sarah chose for her new baby.   The colors are different than any I've ever used for a baby blanket before but I'm getting used to them and I like them now.  Perfect for a baby boy don't you think?
I'm feeling much better l.  I've been home for three days now and although I've developed an infection, they have me on antibiotics and I have high hopes things will be better soon.  Still no driving. No lifting.  No...almost anything.  I'm tired all the time and tired of being tired.
I hope to catch up on all of your blogs soon.  Please be patient with me.

Blessings,
Betsy

  1. I'm so happy to hear you are home! I saw your comment on my blog and hopped right over here. I know it is frustrating to be down. Especially as you feel better and want todo more. But just rest dear girl! You must put all of your energy into getting well. Much love to you. If I could, I would be there. Visiting, helping, cooking for you.
