It's Good to Be Home

I can't put into words how good it is to be home. A lot has happened in the last five days. It's all very mind boggling. However, other than tired and feeling like I lost a battle with a Mac Truck, I am fine.

What an awesome experience it was to read all the lovely comments on the short and very sketchy details that hubby left for you. The love of my online friends certainly shines through. Thank you all for your love and support.

Over the next few days I will be writing a bit about my experience in the hospital with open heart surgery. Nothing graphic, but just a little from each day in general. 95% good experiences and a few not so good.

Dakota is very confused as to what is wrong with me but he did very well in behaving when I came into the house, which amazed me. It's almost like he's not sure if I am safe to be around. I remember Meeko reacted much the same way when Dwight came home after his bypass.

Take care. I will update as I can. Thanks to all who sent cards and notes that were so much appreciated.


  1. Mary! I can't tell you how good it is to hear directly from you again. Tell Dwight we really appreciated his updates though.
    You had lots of prayers being said for you, and I'm sure you still do.

  2. Mary it is so wonderful to hear that you are home and doing well!!


  3. Absolutely wonderful to hear that you're home, dear Mary!!! Make sure you get plenty of rest and let your body heal. I have no doubt that Dwight will take good care of you:-) Please call me whenever you feel like it, E will be afternoons next week. Sending you much love and big...oops, I mean "gentle"...hugs:-) xoxox

  4. It is wonderful to see you back home, Mary, and sounding so well! Be gentle with yourself as you heal now!
