I just want to say thank you to everyone who sent the yule/solstice cards. I have had a really hard and trying year. I will take this love with me, and remember all the kind words, thoughts, and intentions. Thank you for welcoming me.

yes, that! i got such a gorgeous collection of cards and i feel so loved! i love you guys. i really do (and no, i'm not sloppy drunk like in the movies )

where are y'all? it's so quiet! is it because everyone's away at some relative's house?

i'm LOVING this staying home. i'm so glad we decided to do this. : but i think it really helped that my mom came last week to gear up the season and have christmas with her a little early. maybe we'll go to her house next year, but early again. i like this holidaying all week!

oh...i'm changing my username soon...shall i sneak on and see if y'all recognize me by my writing?

I think it usually gets really quiet the closer we get to Christmas.

Hello mamas, hope you all had a nice solstice & that the rest of your holiday season is good as well. Today Jon had surgery to have a tracheostomy & a gtube put in. He seemed much more comfortable when we saw him and that was just an hour after the operations. The nurse told me she'd 'go get a cuppa coffee' when I asked her how to get permission to take a photo of him (I really wanted a decent close up shot & not a hastily taken pic with a cell phone ya know?), which I thought was nice of her I'm mailing it to his dad so he can see how much more comfortable he looks now.

It's looking like a morning road trip for me.. i have to drive to north florida (about an hour ish away) to have a look at the top choice hospital that has a spot for him. If all looks good, they really want to xfer him tomorrow afternoon so that they can get ALL teh staff in to meet him (and me as well). From what I understand I can stay then night when he's admitted, so I'll end up making 2 trips down there but won't come back till the next day. It kinda sucks because it will be hard for me to be there every day since it's that far but I'll be there every day I can until I have to go.

He had a few moments today where there was definitely 'expression' behind those eyes today. They didn't last long, but it's a huge improvement over last week! His nurse was pretty pleased, and the nurse today is a bit of a stiff upper lip kinda lady, so that's saying something I think Keep those good healing vibes coming mamas, I have a feeling he's trying to push past the fog and come back to us.

YAY! i'm so glad for you. and for him. why does he have to be transferred? did i miss that part?

i'm NOT looking forward to tomorrow night where i have to "help" Santa bring in the huge-arse punching bag from the shed, probably in the rain but i have to say, i hope the expression on ds's face is worth it! i hope he likes it! he didn't say what he wanted from Santa this year. he was utterly indecisive the whole season. so he got a boxing bag and a martial arts uniform. i think they're pretty cool!
not to mention a TON of other stuff from Mama i asked him last week if he thinks Santa shops at Goodwill he knows Mama sure does

Hello all!

More snow here, some freezing rain too. Blech! I am getting cabin fever and having daydreams about some tropic isle.

Getting geared up for hanging with family for the next few days. Sometimes you just need to fortify yourself! I am looking forward to watching The Christmas Story yet again, and I hope everyone has a nice xmas!

Cari - so pleased to hear that DS is perking up and seems more comfy!

Mercyn - that sounds like a fun gift!
