Read the blog to Mary Alice

By the way - I forgot to mention, that after my mom got back into her hospital bed after sitting this morning for an hour and a half in a chair, I asked her if she would like to hear the blog updates and comments from yesterday. She was very interested in hearing all of this, especially the comments - so thank you everyone for your kind words, it felt like we were reading a bunch of get well cards that had arrived just for her! THANK YOU :)

We are so glad to hear that things are going so well for your mom. Good health, Mary Alice!

Whitney's growth is a big positive, too. Hopefully the breathing and hearing will work themselves out soon.

Love to all -

Mary Alice, did you hear that stock in Tanguray just went down three points?

Seriously, so glad to hear you are on the mend. Have Laura let us know when you are up for company.

Mary Alice, this is a fabulous way to let us all keep in touch and find out news about your progress! Thanks goes to your family for taking time to share w/ all of us. So glad you made it through the surgery so well. As I read Jim's emails, so many thoughts (that I've tried hard to bury) have scurried right back to mind! Just believe me, it does get better - 4 years out, I really have few reminders. Hope that news helps. In the meantime, I will also share that there were a few days when Greg would find me sobbing because I wondered if I'd ever feel really GOOD ever again. But it does happen. Hang in there! Once you're feeling a little better, give me a call; I'd love to visit with you one of these days. All the best from Greg and I.
