Jessica is home from the hospital. She was discharged over the weekend. I had a phone meeting this morning, and she expressed strong disapproval over my not giving her my complete and undivided attention. (“I just had major surgery.” “You were asleep.” “I might have woken up.” “If I don’t get some work done, we’ll be living in the car.” “You always say that. We never do.”)
So, things are getting back to normal, or at least what’s normal for us. We’re surrounded by carnations (and princess figures). We’re still feeling the effects of all the warm thoughts and well-wishes from all the many people who sent them.
I want to thank everyone who sent flowers and cards, took the time to visit, took me at my word and donated to the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance, and otherwise supported us in one way or another, even if it was just sparing a thought on August 10th.
My deepest, heartfelt thanks to all of you.
I intend to return this space to its regularly scheduled programming, but will be giving occasionally updates on Jessica, since y’all have expressed interest.
