Good People Everywhere

The Quiet Husband is home and slept quietly (!) all night.

It is not so terrible to be not the sick one but the one going in and out of the hospital when it's surrounded by palm trees and the nurses' scrubs feature patterns of sunglasses and porpoises. The care was excellent, and laid-back in a good way.

We missed a spectacular New Year's Day in the Keys; every time I drove up and down the highway I could see dozens of kayaks and fishing boats out in the blue-green-purple water under the bright sunshine. This morning it's still beautiful, but quite chilly, and no one else is up yet, so I don't know whether we're going to start the drive home or not. I'm about to head out for my walk.

The really good thing: being surrounded by friends. Friends sending good wishes and prayers via blog and FB and email, friends at home dealing with our snow-covered house, and a friend in Philly praying in front of my favorite painting.

Thanks, everyone.

oh so glad to hear your husband had a quiet night, that the hospital was a good place, that you found a place to stay, that people were praying for you, and that God provides. Continuing to pray for the journey home.

Many thanks for the update - you and your husband have been very present in my thoughts and prayers, I am grateful he is out of the hospital and that you felt wrapped in God's love and the love/prayers of many. Travel safe.

I am praying. (And also, thank you for the education. I've seen that painting but did not know that it lived near me, or that the painter was the great uncle of a friend of mine.)
